The Government has said more road projects are soon going to be implemented to ease chronic traffic congestion in the city of Dar es Salaam and to facilitate the country’s economic development, TPJ has learnt.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the Mfugale Flyover at the Nyerere Road/Nelson Mandela Intersection in Dar es Salaam recently, President John Pombe Magufuli hailed the project and said it was one of the many other big infrastructural projects underway or soon to be implemented, including the ongoing 247 billion/- Ubungo Interchange and a flyover at Chang’ombe and Machinjioni Area, along Nyerere and Kawawa roads intersections.

“The next flyover projects will be executed at Chang'ombe junction and Machinjioni area, and both tenders have been announced” he said.

President Magufuli added that the government has already announced the tender for constructing a 21-kilometer road to link Mbagala, Gerezani, Kivukoni, Chang’ombe and Magomeni, which would be funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the ongoing expansion of the Kimara to Kibaha section of Morogoro Road into an eight-lane highway.

The mentioned projects, together with the Julius Nyerere Bridge, originated from the 2008 Dar es Salaam Transport Master Plan aimed at easing serious traffic congestion problems in the city.

Another of the big projects whose procurement process has already started is construction of the second phase of Dar es Salaam Rapid Transit (Dart), which involves Kilwa Road, Mbagala depot, terminals and feeder roads.

According to AfDB, which is providing the funds, the project will also involve the construction of Kariakoo Terminal, construction of control and administration building, terminal building, security huts, a fence wall and associated concrete-surface pavements. 

The Mfugale Flyover, whose construction was completed one month ahead of the scheduled completion date, is named in honor of the current Chief Executive Officer of the Tanzania Roads Agency (Tanroads), Eng. Patrick Mfugale.
