Tanzania and South Korea have signed a memorandum of understanding for construction of a TZS 250bn/- bridge across a portion of the Indian Ocean between Coco Beach and Aga Khan Hospital in Dar es Salaam.

The signing ceremony was held in Dar es Salaam recently and was witnessed by President John Magufuli and the Prime Minister of South Korea, Mr. Lee Nak-yon, who was in the country for a three-day visit.

The Chief Executive Officer of Tanzania National Roads Agency- Tanroads Eng. Patrick Mfugale signed on behalf of the Government of Tanzania and Mr. Jee Hoon Kim did so for South Korea’s GS Engineering and Construction, which will undertake the project.

A statement issued by Ikulu said work on the 6.23-kilometre bridge is expected to take 36 months. However, President Magufuli challenged the contractors to try and shorten the duration.

The President hailed the government of South Korean for supporting the project and mentioned Mloganzila Hospital, in Dar es Salaam and Kikwete Bridge across the Malagarasi River in Kigoma, as some of the other projects which received similar support in the recent past.

He went on to invite the country to participate in other major projects such as construction of a ship to ply on Lake Victoria, standard gauge railway and construction of a 3.5 kilometre bridge to link Kigongo and Busisi on Lake Victoria.

The South Korea government leader pledged his country’s continued support to Tanzania in various projects and said his government was going to consider about participating in the construction of the standard gauge railway and the Busisi-Kigongo bridge.
