700-metre bridge to boost Tanzania, Zambia, DRC trade

Tanzania, Zambia and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) are going to build a bridge that will help ease trade between the three countries. The countries are said to have committed $85 million for construction of the bridge that will help boost intra-Africa trade.

The bridge is to be constructed at Kasenga on the border between Congo and Zambia. The bridge will make it easier to cross the Luapula River, which is a section of the River Congo, that forms part of the border between Zambia and the DRC.

According to a VenturesAfrica report, the bridge will ease transportation of people and cargo across the three countries. A Chinese company has already completed the first phase of the project’s feasibility study.
