I guess I'll see when someone takes an image of the buses zooming through. It is a very tight space though.

I know, I felt the same way when I came to the US (roads are too wide)

WB boosts DART project


Gives extra USD100m to finish construction


Quote:
The World Bank yesterday approved USD100m in additional financing for the completion of Dar es Salaam Rapid Transit (DART) system.

According to a statement availed to The Guardian, the initiative is expected to save the economy billions of shillings lost daily in traffic jams and provide relief to at least 300,000 commuters in the city.

It said the additional money from the banks International Development Association (IDA) will bring the total cost of the Second Central Transport Corridor Project (CTCP2) to USD290m.

Quote:
The DRT is implemented by the Dar es Salaam Rapid Transit (DART) agency and is aligned to Tanzanias development strategy which underscores the need for improved transport infrastructure to achieve social and economic objectives, the statement said.

The combined works on the project, including the construction of the road works, bus-passenger terminal buildings, feeder stations, utility power relocation, will provide some 80,000 jobs upon completion in 2015.

The statement said the DART system will be operated by a USD40.9m public private partnership (PPP) arrangement with two private bus operators, one fare collector and a fund manager.

The modern system will provide rapid boarding and dedicated right of way for 148 buses with the capacity of 140 passengers each, providing both normal and express services, it said.

Additionally, another 100 buses with the capacity of 60 passengers each, will transport passengers to the trunk system through feeder stations. The entire 20.9-km road will be provided with tree-shaded bicycle and pedestrian ways on both sides, with an average distance of 500 metres between bus stops.

We are happy with the momentum of implementation of the DART infrastructure as all works contracts have been awarded and the construction is proceeding, said Yonas Mchomvu, the World Banks Transport Specialist in Tanzania.

Oh no I didn't mean on streets like Morogoro/Libya Road but on those like Msimbazi Rd. & Jamhuri St. where the streets seem smaller, buildings closer together, and feels more 'pedestrian' like. Maybe it's just the angle that to me makes the street look smaller than it really is.
