This Zanzibar Development Vision 2050 (ZDV50) is a long-term national development plan formulated to guide Zanzibar’s overall development agenda through to 2050.

As part of this plan, the Ministry of Infrastructure, Communication and Transport of Zanzibar has planned vital architectural and landscaping improvements, including design and construction of the first double carriage flyovers on the island. This project has great potential to contribute towards fast-expanding business and tourism activities in Zanzibar City.

SMEC is collaborating with the Contractor, China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC), to undertake the design and build of over 100 km of priority roads in Zanzibar’s main urban centre, known as the Rehabilitation and Improvement of Urban Roads Project. CCECC developed the Concept Designs and has appointed SMEC as their design engineer.
