Mwanza city roads need urgent repairs

From Daily News, Dar es Salaam

THE Mwanza City Council (MCC), is seeking 822m/- for the rehabilitation of the badly damaged road infrastructure caused by heavy rains that poured in early November this year.

In a letter written to the Permanent Secretary (PS) in the Prime Minister’s Office in respect of the matter, the amount is urgently sought to return roads and bridges in their normal order to allow transportation of people and goods as it was the case before.

“Various roads in the city have been badly dilapidated to the point that it is making hard for the public transport to operate and this is mainly caused by the geographical position of the city which is surrounded by the hills,” read part of the letter that was made available to the ‘Daily News’ as signed by the Acting City Director, Mr Jeremiah Mahinya.

Many of the affected are unpaved roads interconnecting the hills surrounding the Lake side City involving damaged culverts and drainage systems. The most damaged part of the City that needs urgent renovation includes the Isamilo-Jeshini road, Mkuyuni-Tambukareli and Maina-Nyakato road and Igoma-Kishiri-Fumagila road.
