oa East African Geographical Review - The proposed Tanzania - Zambia railway

Volume 1965, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1937-6812



Amongst several recent railway developments in East Africa the proposal to link the Copperbelt of Zambia with the Central Tanzania line has aroused widespread interest and controversy. A southward spur from the central line from Kilosa reached Mikumi in 1962 and will reach Kidatu in 1965; the immediate purpose of this branch line is to facilitate the agricultural development of the fertile Kilombero Valley, where sugar cultivation has been particularly successful with Government help. This line may in due course be continued as far as Makumbako.
