A bridge with the top of Ruvuma which would connect the Mozambique to the Tanzania was proposed since 1975, just after the independence of the Mozambique. A great number of work were proposed with the beginning of the year 1980, but “Unity Bridge” was never finished because of a lack of funds. In 2002, the two governments finally made an agreement authorizing the construction of a new bridge, length 600 meters, with the top of the river. Construction will be finished in 2008 and will cost 28 million American dollars. One can however note that it is currently possible to cross the river using a system of frontier runners located with dimensions Tanzanian, and using a good 4x4, for the periods of low level of water.
