Project General Description

The Mueda – Negomano Road Project Phase II comprises the upgrading of 35 km of the road to paved standard. It aims to improve transport infrastructure in Mozambique and Tanzania and the region as a whole by providing a direct road link with Tanzania in bituminous standards and promote social inclusion of the communities along the road. The project is expected to rehabilitate the Roma-Nambungale road (35 km) by paving it with bitumen to standard standards, including the construction of structures and a bicycle lane. The pavement is a dual layer (RB) surfacing. The project involves three major bridges (along the Roma-Nambungale section), two of which will have a total length of 100 m and the third a length of 40 m. It also includes a social inclusion programme to improve the livelihoods of local people and communities along the road. The total cost of the project is US$ 34.06 million (UA 24.48 million). The Civil works will be implemented over a 24-month period.

Project Objectives

The project objective is to improve transport infrastructure in Mozambique and Tanzania and the region as a whole by providing a reliable land transport link between the two (2) countries and promote social inclusion of the communities along the road.

Beneficiaries

The direct beneficiaries of the project are the population living within the project zone of influence in Cabo Delgado Province. The benefits include improved facilitation of regional integration with Tanzania, improved transport links, social facilities, and job opportunities both in the short and long terms. Beneficiaries of the project include traders and road users, who transport goods between Tanzania and Mozambique. As the project complements the already constructed Unity Bridge between the two countries, the successful completion of the project, will benefit users with more direct and shorter journeys to the ports of Pemba in Mozambique and Mtwara in Tanzania, effectively enhancing regional integration and regional trade.
