TANROADS has invited bids for construction of BRT Phase 3 road infrastructure (Lot 1: Roadworks). Due to the current situation of COVID-19 pandemic, some prospective bidders will not be able to travel to Tanzania for site visit and attend the respective pre-bid meeting that is concerned with project area. In order to assist such bidders to ‘see’ the site, the idea of video streaming through the TANROADS website has been prepared so that competitive bids can be prepared for the Project in context.
