Mwanza city set to curb traffic congestion

From Daily News, Dar es Salaam
By DAILY NEWS Reporters in Dodoma

THE city of Mwanza plans to construct two-lane ring roads from Pasiansi to Buzuruga and from Tunza Loop to the Airport at tarmac level in order to reduce motor vehicle congestion in the city centre.

Vehicle congestion in Mwanza has reached a critical level. When complete, the ring roads will see city residents heading for the Airport from Igoma, Nyakato and Buzuruga, reaching the airport without passing through the city centre. The project, which will partially be financed by the World Bank will cost 24.8bn/-.

The City Council in Mwanza expects to spend 1.28bn/- from the Road Fund on the ring roads including construction of bridges and crossings in 2011/12. The project will also see refurbishment of 18.3 kilometre roads in the city centre that will cost 24.8bn/-.
