The Master Plan for Dodoma

This plan ... is consistent with the ideology of Tanzania. Two very important examples can be given to show the way that it reflects our philosophy. First the Plan shows that Dodoma will be built as a series of connected communities each having a population of about 28,000 people. Within these communities people will be able to cooperate for joint activities of a productive, educational, and social nature while remaining part of the larger town. The second fundamental point about this Master Plan is the way it gives priority to the building up of an efficient public transport service and to the physical movement of people on foot and by bicycle. Private car ownership will become less of an advantage in the new town than it is in places like Dar es Salaam, for many roads and paths will be reserved for buses and bicycles, while inter-city and goods traffic will be confined to major service roads and the railway, by-passing the residential areas. (by Julius K. Nyerere, President of the United Republic of Tanzania)
