Tanzania has opened its first ever flyover in the business capital, Dar es Salaam.

It has been named after Roads Agency CEO Patrick Mfugale, who is widely credited for improving Tanzania's roads.

The $45 million (£34 million) flyover has been built at the Tazara intersection, which is a notorious point for gridlocks and it connects traffic to the central business district, airport and the port.

President John Magufuli was at the colourful ceremony, which was televised live, to mark the opening of the flyover, reports BBC.

Its construction took two years and was financed by the government of Japan.
