Selander Bridge for Massive Expansion


THE government has signed 91.032 million US dollars (154.39bn/-) loan agreement with South Korean based Exim Bank to construct a flyover at Selander Bridge in Dar es Salaam and seven kilometre road to connect the central business district region and Msasani.

Minister for Finance Ms Saada Mkuya Salum, said in the city yesterday that the project to start in the next six months will involve widening of the existing road from two to four lanes.

“The new Selander Bridge with length of 1.03 km crossing the Indian Ocean will mitigate the chronic traffic congestion along Ali Hassan Mwinyi road,” said the minister after signing the loan agreement with Exim bank Executive Director, Mr Seong-hyeog Yim.
