The government of Tanzania, though the Tanzania National Roads Agency (TANROADS), will launch soon the tender process for the 100 km Dar es Salaam - Chalinze highway PPP project in Coast Region.
The government will tender the project after it approves the proposal from the transaction adviser. The adviser will carry out preliminary design, feasibility studies, preparation of the tender document, tender administration and facilitation of financial close.
The project aims to reduce congestion along the existing Morogoro Road.
The project works entails construction of a 6-lane tolled expressway with service roads on both sides and grade separated interchanges. Access will be fully controlled and height of embankment will be high enough to accommodate frequent underpasses and interchanges while maintaining good vertical profile. The expressway is intended to be operated as toll road hence the works will include provision of toll collection facilities. Various amenities and facilities to serve the users of the expressway will also be required.
Dar es Salaam is Tanzania's largest and richest city, the largest city in eastern Africa by population, and is a regionally important economic center. It is the capital of the Dar es Salaam Region administrative province. Chalinze is located to the west of Dar es Salaam, about half way between Dar es Salaam and Morogoro, some 200 km away.
Tanzania Ports Authority has recently launched a tender process to develop a New Oil Terminal Jetty at Kigamboni in Dar es Salaam Port through a PPP project. The new facilities will replace the old Kurasini Oil Jetty (KOJ) in Dar es Salaam. The project will be developed on a design, build and finance (DBF) basis.
