Kampala to Entebbe International Airport Expressway Project

Also known as: KE Project


Uganda National Road Authority planned to develop Kampala to Entebbe International Airport Expressway Project, in Kampala, Uganda. China First Highway Engineering Co Ltd was the project contractor. Beijing Expressway Supervision Co Ltd was consultant. The Uganda KE project was a two-way four-lane expressway with a total length of about 50 kilometers. There are 6 main line bridges, 19 overpasses, 18 underground passages, 3 toll stations and 4 interchanges, including the longest bridge in Uganda.It was divided into a 36.94km-long section and a 12.68km-long link road. The speed limit on the expressway ranges between 50km/h and 100km/h. The 36.94km-long section was further divided into two parts. The first 24.9km stretch of the section originates at a point on the Kampala Northern Bypass between Busega and Masanafu intersections and runs along the new route before ending at Abayita Ababari Interchange. The 12.04km section starts at Abayita Ababari Interchange and runs along the existing Kampala-Entebbe road, of which 7.4km was widened and 4.64km upgraded. The 12.68km-long link road starts from the highway at Kajjansi Interchange and runs eastwards before ending at Munyonyo. It was the first expressway designed and constructed in Uganda to adopt Chinese specifications and standards, and it was also the first toll expressway in Uganda.
