The Dar es Salaam Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project-Phase 2 involves the construction of infrastructure that includes 20.3km of exclusive BRT lanes and Non Motorised Transport (NMT) facilities along Kilwa Road corridor and part of Kawawa Road. The project corridor traverses from Mbagala Area in Temeke District to the Central Business District where it connects with Phase 1 of the BRT system at the Kariakoo hub. The Provision of BRT system is expected to directly enhance and improve the traffic circulation and eliminate bottlenecks to traffic flow to various economic activity centers such as the industrial zones, and the vast populous residential areas of Temeke Municipality. The proposed project would therefore impact positively on the informal and formal businesses by providing them with improved accessibility and enhanced roadside air quality. It is further estimated that by improving the existing road and public transport system, the annual vehicular GHG emission rates in tones would drop by at least 60% due to improved average traffic operating speeds along the project corridor and particularly by the use large modern buses that uses modern technology and cleaner fuels in the BRT system. The project will be implemented over a 4 year period (2016-2020). The total cost net of taxes is USD 159.32m (TZS 285.1 billion).
The project development objective is to provide enhanced transport facilities that are reliable and cost effective, with a view to improve urban mobility, connectivity and accessibility to commuters and businesses and thereby supporting economic and social development of the city and the Country as a whole. It is also expected to result in reduced congestion and improved air quality along the project corridor.
The project is expected to benefit an estimated population of at least 1.2 million representing some 25% of the Dar es Salaam City’s population. Other beneficiaries include users of major city connecting arterial roads including Mandela and Nyerere Roads. The disadvantaged women, school children, handicapped and elderly are also poised to benefit from the new BRT system. At the moment, they cannot manage to comfortably use the existing public transport especially during peak hours.
