We regret to announce that the re-opening of the Chambeshi Railway Bridge on the Chambeshi River has been delayed further due to unforeseen challenges faced in completing the works by the Engineering Contractor.

The repairs are now expected to end by 30th August and the re-opening of the line is consequently rescheduled to happen around 15th September 2022, after line testing.

It is also planned that passenger services between Dar es Salaam and New Kapiri-Mposhi, which were suspended in March 2020, following the onset of the Covi-19 pandemic, will resume immediately after the re-opening of the Chambeshi bridge.
