CONSTRUCTION of Terminal Three at the Julius Nyerere International Airport (JNIA) is now complete by an estimated 70 per cent. The time to complete the project has been extended to May, next year, instead of December, this year.
The Engineers Registration Board (ERB) Vice- Chairperson, Ms Gemma Modu, said the time of project completion has extended due to various challenges including availability of quality construction materials which are bought from abroad, so it takes time materials to arrive in the country.
She said that in Dar es Salaam yesterday when the ERB team visited to the project area to assess the progress, challenges and achievements of the project. She mentioned other challenge as time of shifting from one phase to another. “So far, agreement between the government and contractors of the project have already made for extension of time to complete the project,” she said.
