2.CONTRACT PACKAGE 1 – CBD ROADS AND BONDENI DRAIN
2.1PRINCIPLE ITEMS OF WORK
The Contract Package 1 involves rehabilitation of 8.391 km of Central Business District Roads as listed below, together with 0.8 km of Bondeni Drain, 3 nrs solar based traffic signals and street lighting.
◄CBD Road Network
Road Name and Road IDLength (m)Remarks
◄Bondeni Stormwater Drain
The Bondeni Storm water drain which starts in the CBD and heads out in a south - south easterly direction required upgrading. The existing drain has to be demolished and the new drain has to be formalized to a closed drain through the CBD for 500 m. Once out of the city centre the drain opens to a concrete lined channel for 225m. The Channel passes underneath an existing road where a new box culvert will be constructed and continues as a concrete channel to the outlet point, under the railway line. The first part of the closed underground drain consists of 1.5m x 1.5m reinforced concrete box having a length of 225m. The second part consists of a 2m x 2m reinforced concrete box with a length of 275m.
◄Solar Traffic Lights
Solar Powered Traffic Signals will be installed at three intersections in the Arusha CBD. The three intersections which were identified during the design stage are Friends Corner, Stendi Kuu and Esso intersections.
About 185 nos Street Lights were to be provided and installed at an interval of 40m on all the CBD Roads earmarked for the rehabilitation under this project
