The consortium of Advanced Engineering Solutions (TZ) and ILSHIN ENGINEERING & CONSULTANTS have signed a contract with the Tanzania National Roads Agency (TANROADS) on 26TH MARCH, 2019 for the execution of the project: consultancy services for construction supervision of new wami bridge (513.5 m) and its associated approach roads (4.325 km), tender no. ae/001/2017-18/hq/c/25.
The construction of Wami Bridge is part of the Government strategy to develop its road network to support the socio-economic development of Tanzania. The existing Wami Bridge which has the length of about 88.75 meters long has steep approaches and sharp curves that have been causing difficult driving conditions and in some cases caused fatal road accidents. The Tanzania National Roads Agency (TANROADS) through M/s Intercontinental Consultants and Technocrats Pvt. Ltd. in association with M/s Apex Engineering Co. Ltd. has prepared a design of the new bridge and its approaches at another location around the same area in order to arrest the current situation. The intended new bridge and its approaches have been designed with due considerations to good geometric standards avoiding the substandard curves and steep gradient for safety enhancement and comfortable driving. The total design length of the project road including structure is about 4.325 km connectingChalinze to Segera. Due to the substandard geometry of the existing bridge caused by the complicated landscape of the area, the location of the New Wami Bridge has been proposed to be on the downstream direction of the existing structure.
