The Government has moved construction of a standard gauge central railway line a step closer to reality after signing the contract for constructing the Dar es Salaam to Morogoro portion of the envisaged line, TPJ has learnt.
A statement issued by Reli Assets Holding Company Ltd (RAHCO) following the contract signing ceremony in Dar es Salaam said the 205-kilometre project will be implemented by a joint venture between Turkish and Portuguese firms, which won the tender that was contested by more than 30 other bidders.
According to the statement, the project, which will take 30 months to complete, will be undertaken by Yapi Merkez Insaat Ve Sanayi (Turkey) and Mota-Engil, Engenharie and Construcao Africa, SA (Portugal) at a total cost of 1,215,282,000 US dollars.
The Dar es Salaam - Morogoro stretch is part of the 1,216 kilometre stretch that will eventually link Dar es Salaam and up country regions of Tabora and Mwanza as well as East African neighbors Rwanda and Burundi.
The statement, signed by RAHCO’s Acting Managing Director Masanja Kadogosa said tenders for the remaining portions of the project, namely the 336 km linking Morogoro and Makutupora, Makutupora - Tabora (294 km), Tabora - Isaka (133 km) and Isaka - Mwanza (248 km), will be opened in April this year.
Furthermore, the statement said the line which will run parallel to the existing German-built line, will allow a speed of 160 km per hour and will handle 17 million tonnes per annum.
