The government expects to upgrade to tarmac level the Tanga-Horohoro Road during the 2008/2009 financial year, the National Assembly was told here yesterday. The Minister for Infrastructure Development, Dr Shukuru Kawambwa, told the National Assembly that the road would be constructed with the assistance from the US government through the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC).

The 65-kilometre long Tanga-Horohoro Road is one of five roads with a total of 439.5 kilometers in length that would be upgraded to tarmac level through the MCC, he said. The minister also said those who would be affected by the exercise of upgrading the road would be compensated fairly as soon as changes in the environmental impact assessment report are made and approved.

Dr Kawambwa told the National Assembly that the government had already prepared tender documents, conducted a feasibility study and submitted an environmental impact assessment report to the MCC but the corporation wanted a few changes to the report. The minister was responding to a question from the MP for Mkinga, Mr Mbaruk Mwandoro, who wanted to know when the government would start upgrading the road to tarmac level and when people affected by the exercise would be compensated.
