The Tanzanian Airport Authority has signed a contract worth USD170million with Dutch construction firm, BAM International, for the construction of a new international terminal (Terminal 3) at Dar es Salaam's Julius Nyerere International (JNIA).
Under the contract, work will cover the construction of the first phase of the terminal comprising the construction of the main terminal building - facilitating 3.5 million annual passengers - including parking lots, access roads, platforms, and a taxiway.
Phase 2 will then provide further capacity to facilitate 6 million annual passengers. The design of the roof is inspired on the traditional sailing boats that can be found at the Dar es Salaam coast.-DailyNews
