Maendeleo Dar: Daraja la watembea kwa miguu Kimara; Flyovers Septemba

Magari yakipita chini ya daraja la watembea kwa miguu eneo la Kimara, Dar es Salaam, lililojengwa na Kampuni ya Ujenzi ya Strabag eneo la Kimara katika mradi wa ujenzi wa barabara za mabasi yaendayo haraka jijini Dar es Salaam. (picha: Richard Mwaikenda/Kamanda wa Matukio blog)

Ujenzi wa barabara za `flyover` kuanza Septemba mwaka huu

Mtendaji Mkuu wa Wakala wa Barabara nchini (Tanroads), Mhandisi Patrick Mfugale, amesema ujenzi wa barabara zipitazo juu (flyover) kati ya Mandela na Nyerere utaanza rasmi mwezi Septemba mwaka huu.

Katika mahojiano na NIPASHE Jumapili, mhandisi Mfugale, alisema ujenzi huo utaanza mara baada ya kukamilika kuondoa nguzo za umeme na mabomba ya maji, zoezi ambalo linaendelea hivi sasa.

NIPASHE ilifika jana eneo hilo ambalo litajengwa barabara hizo na kukuta makandarasi wakiendelea na zoezi la kuhamisha mabomba.

Akizungumza na gazeti hili, Msimamizi wa zoezi hilo, Peter Mitondo, tayari wamekamilisha uondoaji wa mabomba ndani ya Tazara na sasa wapo kwenye barabara kuu za magari.

Alisema uhamishaji huo wa mabomba ya maji kwenye barabara ya Tazara ili kupisha ujenzi huo unatarajiwa kukamilika mwezi Septemba mwaka huu.

Alipoulizwa ujenzi huo utachukua muda gani kukamilika, msimamizi huyo alisema hafahamu kwa kuwa mkandarasi atakayehusika atakuwa mwingine.

Alisema mkandarasi wa sasa anayehusika kwenye kuyaondoa mabomba hayo ya maji ni kampuni za pamoja ambazo ni RJR, RJ na Jos Harsen.

University of Dar es Salaam and Sokoine University of Agriculture in top 100



Since 2004 and every six months an independent, objective, free, open scientific exercise is performed by the Cybermetrics Lab (Spanish National Research Council, CSIC) to provide reliable, multidimensional, updated and useful information about the performance of universities from all over the world based on their web presence and impact.

This time around, Webometrics Ranking of World Universities has ranked University of Dar es Salaam 28 out of 100 universities in Africa.

The Spanish based website ranks the top five universities as Cairo, Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Pretoria and Kwazulu Natal.

Researchers say the rankings are based on technologies, computer science, social sciences and humanities disciplines that usually amount for more than half of the scholars and students in a standard comprehensive university.

“Webometrics also measure, in an indirect way, other missions like teaching or the so-called third mission, considering not only the scientific impact of the university activities, but also the economic relevance of the technology transfer to industry, the community engagement (social, cultural, environmental roles) and even the political influence” click here to read more.

Tanzanian Govt to ask BA to reintroduce direct Dar-London flights

TANZANIA is thinking of asking the British government to reintroduce British Airways' (BA) direct flights between Dar es Salaam and London in view of an increased number of tourists from Britain, which is currently the leading source of tourists visiting the country.

Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Minister, Mr Bernard Membe, said Tanzania would also ask the UK to allow the British High Commission in Dar es Salaam to issue visas, unlike now where visa processing is done through Nairobi, Kenya.

BA announced in March, last year, that it was pulling its services out of Tanzania, attributing the move to low profitability. The airline used to operate flights between Heathrow and Julius Nyerere International Airports for almost four decades. "Now that we have multinationals such as BG and
