The project objective is to improve road transport infrastructure to reduce road maintenance costs, vehicle operating costs and travel time between Dodoma and Babati and between Tunduru, Mangaka and Mtambaswala and provide the communities in the zones of influence access to bigger markets and social services and contribute to reduction of poverty.


The main beneficiaries of the project include export/import operators, freight operators, the business community in the region and communities in the zones of influence of the two roads.
