Financing has been secured that will help pay for the 110km ring road around Tanzania’s official capital, Dodoma. The US$180 million loan is being provided through the African Development Bank (AfDB). The AfDB is giving $138 million itself, while is also routing a $42 million loan through the African Growing Together Fund that it administrates on behalf of the Chinese Government.


A further $35 million is being provided by the Tanzanian Government itself. When complete, the ring road will connect with the 10,228km road link running from Cairo to Cape Town. The Pan-Africa Highway road connection runs through Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Several sections of the route are being upgraded at present.
