|Project Details||The government of Tanzania proposed to develop a highway consisting of a 480 km tarmac road to connect Arusha to Musoma, with a 53km stretch of the road passing through Serengeti National Park in northern Tanzania. This road will connect the two major ports on Lake Victoria (Mwanza and Musoma) to Dar es Salaam on Indian Ocean. |
Currently, traffic must travel 418 kilometers around the Serengeti in order to pass from Mwanza to Arusha on a paved road. The new road is expected to decrease this time, enabling larger companies, as well as small farmers and entrepreneurs, to transport goods more easily.
