The Dar es Salaam Regional Commissioner, Mr. Paul Makonda, recently inspected construction of the Selander Bridge in Dar es Salaam and called upon local manufacturers of construction materials to ensure the quality of their supplies for the sake of their reputation and the confidence of international firmsand contractors undertaking various projects in the country.

Mr. Makonda said the Government was emphasizing on the use of local materials in all major projects but noted that the good intention to promote local manufacturers would be pointless unless the supplies were of high quality and went on to warn that the contractors could opt to source their materials abroad if quality was compromised.

 The RC however, said he was impressed to learn that most of the materials used in the bridge project such as cement, iron bars and other materials were manufactured locally and noted that this stimulated the country’s economy.

 He warned against theft and vandalism of materials and observed that those employed to work at such projects should work hard, gain practical knowledge and be good ambassadors so that they retain employment in future projects once the current task is completed.

 Briefing the RC, the Chief Executive Officer of the Tanzania Roads Agency (Tanroads), Engineer Patrick Mfugale, said the contractors were finalizing construction of a temporary bridge – to be used for ferrying equipment and materials - before commencement of construction of the main bridge that would last 30 months at a cost of US Dollars 112 million.

 The bridge, to be 6.2 kilometers long and 20.5 metres wide, will have 4 ways for cars and 2 pedestrian routes and will link ​​Aga Khan area and Coco Beach.
