2018-03-23 Tanzania begins work on Morogoro-Dodoma SGR project

Friday 23 March 2018

Construction is now underway on the second phase of the 1,219-kilometre Tanzania standard gauge railway, which seeks to connect Dar es Salaam to the port city Mwanza on the shores of Lake Victoria in northern Tanzania.

Phase two of the standard gauge railway project will involve construction of a 426 km line from Morogoro to Makutuporo region in Dodoma in a move that is expected to gift Tanzania with its first high-speed railway.

Work is proceeding on the first phase of the project, which involves replacement of the existing century-old Dar es Salaam to Morogoro narrow gauge line with a new standard-gauge railway line.
