Tanzania Signs Deal On New Bridge to Cut Time On Central Corridor

The bridge will connect Kigongo and Busisi areas in Mwanza region, and help to link Tanzania to Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Burundi. Currently, vehicles take about three hours to cross to either side of the lake via a ferry, two hours in a queue to get onto the ferry and another hour to get to the other side.
