The upgrading of the Shelui-Nzega trunk Road along the Central Corridor is in line with the Government’s stated policy on road infrastructure development. The project is consistent with the Bank Group’s strategy for Tanzania in the transport sector for the period 1996-1998. It seeks to support the economic and social recovery programmes taking place in Tanzania through the removal of transportation bottlenecks and the upgrading of the road network. The project outputs are the upgrading of 108 km between Shelui and Nzega and 4 km access road to Nzega town. This road will improve transport services between Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and Uganda and would contribute to regional integration.
The sector goal of the project is to support economic and social recovery programs taking place in Tanzania through removal of transportation bottlenecks. The specific objective of the project is to improve the road transport services in the project area by reduction of road maintenance and vehicle operating costs, and to promote regional integration, in particular, between Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi.
The project will contribute towards achieving the sector goal by providing an efficient and cost effective transport system for both national and international traffic with the country. Its implementation will mainly benefit the populations of the target area, namely the Singida and Tabora regions.
