Tanzania: Mwanza to Nzega Road Rehabilitation


Beca investigated and designed the rebuild of a 270km trunk road linking Mwanza to Nzega in Tanzania. Despite a challenging environment, the road was successfully completed and has helped strengthen the region’s primary industries.

 

Interestingly, the Mozambique and subsequent Tanzania work was rumoured to have come about because of a quirk on Peter Hays UN file that said he could speak pidgin English from his time spent in PNG. Somehow this was translated into a belief that he could speak Portuguese a requirement for the Mozambique job.
