SMEC has been engaged by TradeMark East Africa to provide construction supervision and contract administration during the rehabilitation of access roads at Dar es Salaam Port.
SMEC is providing technical support, contract management and construction supervision of road rehabilitation works.
SMEC will ensure project works comply with design, drawings, specifications, contract conditions and sound engineering practices, and are completed in accordance with scheduling and budget requirements.

The Dar es Salaam Port currently processes more than 90% of Tanzania’s import and export trade volume, and acts as a maritime gateway to Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, Rwanda and Uganda.
Current forecasts predict that by 2028, bulk cargo deliveries to the port will have quadrupled. In order to meet future cargo requirements, the Tanzania Ports Authority is undertaking a modernisation of the Port.
Project works include infrastructure upgrades, spatial improvements and the rehabilitation of existing access roads to facilitate increased freight transport.
