Tanzanian PM inspects road interchange built by Chinese firm

DAR ES SALAAM, (Xinhua) -- Tanzanian Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa on Wednesday inspected the construction site of Ubungo road interchange built by China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) and said he was impressed by the progress made.

“I have been impressed by progress made,” Majaliwa said. “The Tanzania National Roads Agency has assured me that construction by CCECC was being done according to schedule.”

The prime minister said the government expects the 83-million-U.S.-dollar project to complete in June 2020.

Majaliwa said he has ordered Dar es Salaam Regional Commissioner Paul Makonda to oversee the relocation of petty traders from the area covered by the interchange project.

“I am worried about the safety of these petty traders and their customers when actual construction takes shape,” he said. “They must be relocated to special areas.”

In March 2017, Tanzanian President John Magufuli and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim laid the foundation stone for the Ubungo interchange project, connecting Nelson Mandela, Sam Nujoma and Morogoro roads in the commercial capital, Dar es Salaam.

The project is expected to ease traffic congestion on the busy Ubungo junction, where more than 60,000 vehicles pass daily.
