Burundi and Tanzania - Multinational: RN3: Rumonge – Rutunga -Bujumbura Section [77.6 km] and Kabingo-Kasulu-Manyovu [300.1 km] Road Upgrade Project – RAP Summary


Road transport plays a significant role in the socio-economic development of both Tanzania and Burundi and accounts for more than 90% of motorized freight and passenger traffic in the two countries. The significant part of both countries’ road networks form part of the East African Community (EAC) regional trunk road network and therefore serve as transit for exports and imports through the Dar-es-Salaam port for the land locked countries to the west, namely, Burundi, Eastern DRC, Rwanda and Uganda. As such the two countries have developed investment programs in the transport sector to promote intra-state and international trade, enhance economic activity and promote co-operation and integration of the EAC region.
