Dar plans for bicycle lanes to ease congestion

Business Daily, July 15
Author: Mohamed Issa

Dar-es-Salaam has started a large- scale project to promote the use of bicycles to ease access to the central business district. Under the project, the streets of the fastest growing Dar- es -Salaam City of nearly four million residents are to be reconstructed to allow for bicycle users to have exclusive lanes to ride without fear or subjugation to cars even in the down town area.
