BAM team completes 220km Tanzanian road scheme

27 Aug 13 BAM International has completed the rehabilitation of 220km of the Tanzam highway in Tanzania.

The route is a main traffic artery in East Africa, connecting the port and airport of Dar es Salaam to the Tanzanian inland and neighbouring countries.

BAM and Danish partner Per Aarsleff renovated the Tanzam highway between Iyovia and Mafinga in a €134m (£115m) contract.

In addition to rehabilitating and strengthening the carriageway, the contract involved building paved shoulders and climbing lanes to make the road safer. Other traffic safety improvement measures were included in towns, villages and hazard spots.

The scope of work also included the construction of a weighbridge station  and ancillary tasks such as  signage, road lining and guardrails. The project was financially supported by the Danish government.
