Tanzania to modernize rail infrastructure with World Bank’s credit

The government of Tanzania borrowed USD 300m from the World Bank for upgrading the Dar es Salaam to Dodoma, Tabora and Isaka lines of Tanzania Railways Limited (TRL). Currently an advisor is being sought in connection with a proposed UDS 1b public-private partnership (PPP) scheme to undertake this work.
Canadian consultancy Canarail finalised a detailed engineering study for the project in February 2014.
The track renewal scheme is part of the “partially-donor-funded Big Results Now (BRN) programme” and includes the purchase of rolling stock as well as modernization of locomotives and wagons at TRL’s Morogoro workshops.
