One of the problems with bad roads is that transport times are so long, that many goods spoil before reaching market. But bad roads are more than a barrier for growth: ever important areas such as healthcare and education also suffer, when people cannot travel easily."Roads are the path to development," says Jan Kieler, Senior Vice President, COWI Africa. "Tanzania gets it, so infrastructure is the largest item on their national budget."In the past few years Tanzania has seen growth rates of five percent, showing that its roads to development are paved with asphalt.And with TANZAM providing access to one of East Africa's busiest ports, connecting neighboring Zambia and other countries in the region, hopes are that further road construction will also brighten their economies as well.
