Iringa Region’s quest to become one of the country’s major tourist hub received a boost recently following the opening of a new 189-kilometre road linking it with the capital city, Dodoma.

The road was officially opened by President John Magufuli who reaffirmed his government’s commitment to revamp the region’s infrastructures, including Nduli airstrip, in order to spur tourism and other economic activities in southern regions.

According to a statement released by Ikulu, Dr. Magufuli acknowledged the fact that poor infrastructures had hindered the region’s economic activities such as tourism and said the Government was determined to remedy that.

“Ruaha National Park is so huge, I would like it to become an important tourist destination [and] residents in the regions to also benefit from tourism as is the case with northern regions,” he said.

Tanzania National Roads Agency (Tanroads) Chief Executive Officer, Eng. Patrick Mfugale, said the new road would cut down by more than half, travel time between Dodoma and Iringa, a journey which could take almost an entire day during the rainy season.

The road has been built at a cost of TZS 207.457 billion with funds coming from African Development Bank and Japan International Cooperation Agency.
