He told Parliament that the study was being carried out by M/s Cheil Engineering of South Korea and M/s Inter-Consult of Tanzania as consulting engineers.

The Deputy Minister said after completion of a feasibility study and design works and total cost for the construction work determined, the government will begin construction of the road in phases, according to availability of funds.https://allafrica.com/stories/201909090109.html
