Comparison between Kenya vs Tanzania longest bridges under construction

The East African region is set for a major boost with the increased projects it is undertaking. Both Kenya and Tanzania are leading the way in the development of their infrastructure which is seen as a major driver for their fast economic growth.

Building bridges are an example of such progress taking place. I decided to do a comparison between the longest bridges being built in respective to both countries that East Africans should know and be proud of.

Kenya, which is East Africa's biggest economy, is currently constructing the Mteza - Mwache bridge which is expected to be the longest in the country at an estimated distance of 1.44 km in length as part of the larger Dongo Kundu project in Mombasa.

It will cost about Ksh 24 billion ((US $203 million).

Tanzania on the other hand is constructing the Kigongo - Busisi bridge also known as Mwanza Gulf, which will have a total estimated length of 3.2 km making it the longest in the East African region upon completion.

It is located along Mwanza region in Lake Victoria. It will cost about Tsh 699 billion (US $300 million).

Both bridges are in the construction phase and are a major milestone to the East Africa Community.
