CPCS Presents the Draft Final Report for the Dar es Salaam-Isaka-Kigali Standard Railway Line Study

Commencing in June 2018, CPCS, with Aurecon, has been working with Rwanda Transport Development Agency (RTDA) and Tanzania Railways Corporation (TRC) to update the feasibility study for the Dar es Salaam-Isaka-Kigali Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) Line and prepare an alignment and engineering design and tender document for the Isaka-Kigali portion of the railway.

The project considers the following updates to the proposed railway: higher speeds on an electrified SGR line; the inclusion of a branch line to Rwanda's new international airport located at Bugesera, and spur lines to Kabanga mine in Tanzania and Kigali Logistic Platform in Rwanda.

The CPCS-Aurecon team presented its Draft Final Report in Dar es Salaam on April 3-4, 2019. The project is expected to be fully completed by end April.
