Environmentally Optimised Design for Low Volume District Roads in Tanzania

Abstract

Tanzania district roads network comprises of about 56,000 km of unpaved roads. Lightly trafficked, these are most frequently used by cyclists, motorbikes and cars. Short trial sections were built on two roads in Tanzania – in Bagomoyo and Siha. This presentation illustrated the techniques used in order to draw conclusion on the best ways ton implement low­‐cost solutions for surfacing district roads to allow year‐round access.
