Tanzania Launches Longest Cable-Stay Bridge in East Africa

The President of Tanzania, John Magufuli has officially opened longest cable-stay bridge in East Africa in Kigamboni and proposed it to be named after Nyerere, the Nation’s founding president.

Dubbed ‘Kigamboni Bridge’, it will connect Dar es Salaam’s central business district to Kigamboni ward across the Kurasini creek. Construction started in 2012, and the project has cost more than KSh13 billion.

The 680 metre long cable-stayed bridge is the first of its kind in East Africa. However, it is still not the longest bridge in Tanzania. That fete goes to ‘Mkapa Bridge’, which is almost a kilometre long.
