By Halili Letea; tz.nationmedia.com
Dar es Salaam. President John Magufuli yesterday laid the foundation stone for construction of the Sh258.3 billion ($112.8 million), New Selander Bridge that together with connecting roads will measure 6.23 kilometres. The bridge and the connecting roads to the bridge were set to be completed in 30 months from October 2018 and will be constructed by GS Contractors Ltd from Korea. The whole project will be funded by EOCF and Korea Exim Bank from the Republic of Korea at a cost of Sh208.46 billion ($112.8 million) in association with the Tanzanian government, which will avail Sh49.45 billion ($21.82 million) for the project.
Speaking during the occasion, Dr Magufuli said construction of the bridge and the connecting roads will reduce traffic jams significantly, save time and increase government revenues.
“The project will help to save more than Sh400 billion that is lost every year as a result of traffic jams,” he told guests at the function. The President also called on GS Contractors Ltd to finish the project on time, or even bring it to a close before schedule, saying all the requirements for its accomplishment were in place. The Head of State urged the Korean Ambassador in the country, Mr Cho Tae-Ick, to give it close supervision. “I believe that under your supervision the project will be finished on time,” he said.

Dar es Salaam. President John Magufuli yesterday laid the foundation stone for expansion of the Dar es Salaam-Chalinze road into an eight-lane highway. The President also took the opportunity to reiterate his government’s stand that it will not pay any compensation to people whose structures were demolished to pave the way for the project after they were build on the road reserve.
Speaking at the ceremony to lay the foundation stone – which was held at the Kimara Stopover in the city – Dr Magufuli said upgrading of the 19.2-kilometre stretch aims at reducing traffic congestion along what is arguably the busiest highway in the country.

Only a tiny fraction of the Selous Game Reserve will be used to build the proposed hydropower dam, the president stated at yesterday’s formal signing of the landmark project deal with and the Egyptian construction firm Arab Contractors at State House in Dar es Salaam.
Magufuli cited four main reasons which make it a must for the project to be implemented, including low implementation costs and much-expected massive benefits.
Hydropower is much cheaper compared to other energy sources, he pointed out, costing 36/- per unit as against 65/- for nuclear power, 103/- for wind energy, and 114.5/- for geothermal energy.
The biggest benefit of the project is that it will generate 2,115 megawatts of electricity, which is more than all the electricity generated from all other available sources (1,560MW), he said.
