Reli Assets Holding Co., the state- controlled custodian of Tanzania’s railway network, said it’s seeking a developer and operator for a commuter rail service in Dar es Salaam, the country’s commercial capital.

The operator will upgrade about 32 kilometers (20 miles) of existing rail lines crossing suburbs in the city, the company said today in statement published in the Daily News newspaper.

The development of the network may include rehabilitating or upgrading the existing track, improving telecommunications and signaling systems, building passenger terminals and flyovers, it said.
