The NORAD supported TAN 045 Road Sector Programme in Tanzania focuses on institutional strengthening of the Ministry of Works. TanRoads, a new semi-autonomous roads agency, was established in 2000. The review concludes that the programme has generally been running well. Considerable achievements have been made, although they fall somewhat short of initial expectations. Sustainability cannot be considered achieved as yet for the programme, but some components are sustainable and others are moving towards sustainability. There is a need for continuation and widening of current support to the sector. It is recommended that a new sector-wide five-years programme focus on institutional development within three areas: Management and Organisational Development of Ministry of Works, Management and Organisational Development of TanRoads and Rural Roads Organisational and Management Development.
