Recent Progress in Road Bridge Design in Tanganyika Territory

The Road System* Tanganyika Territory is situated on the East Coast of Africa, just south of the Equator, and has been administered by Great Britain under mandate from the League of Nations since 1918. About 360,000 square miles in area, the Territory possesses a road system which at present comprises 3,500 miles of trunk roads, 10,OOO miles of district roads, besides other unclassified native or private roads or tracks. All constructional and maintenance work on the trunk roads is carried out by the Public Works Department of the Tanganyika Government, with headquarters at Dar-es-Salaam, where the designs for all major structures are prepared. Other roads are built and maintained by local administrative officers of the Government. A.J. Mitchell
