Why Tanzania should abandon regional SGR

With the choice of the Kenya loop by Uganda, Tanzania's regional SGR ambitions have been blunted. Consequently, the country should abandon the regional dream and instead focus on developing a domestic SGR. She needs it.

Exactly whats that supposed to mean.

I consider it idiotic to drop a project because another country is doing their own project.

Infrastructure will help with trade and GDP growth. It will also help cut unemployment and poverty. So more infrastructure (motorways, railways) in EA means more jobs, trade and less poverty which is a win win for everyone.

Lets not generalise a population because one person is trying to state their opinion.

Gentlemen and Ladies. Good Morning. Could we stop arguing over Nothing, please? The article in question never for once suggested that Tanzania should abandon its SGR project. It suggested that the Greenfield section to the west of Isaka is unprofitable and therefore Tanzania should consider instead, developing the Southern Link to Mtwara which hosts resources needed to develop the country. The Greenfield Link to Rwanda and Burundi is not viable for the foreseeable future. Why waste US$2.07 billion on it yet TZ could use the same amount to link Mtwara region with the rest of the country through the SGR? Please read the article and add any useful inputs to enrich it.

The post provider is kenyan. �� that itself explain itself as far as this project is concerned. Due to their foolishly expensive spending on the project they want to maximise territorial gain. Forgetting rwanda and burundi apone completion of this project will have more goods to transport and hence increase in business. This project can extend from burundi to eastern and nothern congo (due to good ties with congo and cheap price of the rail )

Thing is they also said the same thing about the Kenyan SGR. That it was a waste of time that Kenya should have instead upgraded the metre gauge line.

Public money isn't always about profitability etc. Its about long term growth. Its why you have things like healthcare that can never do well when privatised and even when its mostly controlled by the government it also isn't ideal but its better.

Infrastructure will open up the African interior and it will make cities along the line grow which is the goal.

Remember a lot of the lines even the subway lines in many parts of the world are subsidised in order to make transportation cheap because affordable transport always catalyses growth.

To Tanzania 25. Kenya or Kenyans are not asking Tanzania to stop developing its infrastructure. It needs it. It is, infact, Tanzania that was asking Uganda to stop developing her own railway so that Tanzania's line can generate sufficient freight. Tanzania had approached Uganda to abandon the Kampala- Malaba loop saying it is expensive and marketing the Central Corridor as way cheaper than the Nothern Corridor. Ugandan Officials shot that down http://eaers.blogspot.co.ke/2017/06/...ption-for.html and Uganda President agreed with them and approved the Nothern Corridor loo. See http://eaers.blogspot.co.ke/2017/08/...magufulis.html. My post is an alternative thought,not an opposition to building a Railway line.

Hi there. Just passing through, but I wanna mention that there seems to be some track maps of the Tanzania-Rwanda line, especially around Kigali.

Dar-Kigali railway a game changer – transport minister






Source: http://www.newtimes.co.rw/section/read/227911/


I've been trying to find any project report that features the whole track line in detail like the above, but no luck.

Hey there, just a question: Is the SGR replacing the old colonial railway or is it being build addtionally (like in Kenia)?

additionally, both will be used in tandem.
