Location

The road would start at Busega, a neighborhood in Makindye Division in the city of Kampala It would continue south-west through Kyengera, Nabbingo and Nsangi to end at Mpigi, a distance of approximately 30 kilometres 19 mi The approximate coordinates of the road, near the town of Maya, are 0°15'540"N, 32°25'490"E Latitude:0265012; Longitude:32430288 The expressway would be a component of the Kampala–Masaka Road

Background

The current road is a two-lane single carriageway in good condition The government of Uganda plans to widen the road to a four-lane dual carriage highway, as part of its efforts to decongest Kampala The construction is planned to be funded under a public-private partnership arrangement

The design includes four major interchanges at Nabbingo, Nsangi, Maya and Lugala These interchanges will allow connection with the Northern Kampala Bypass Highway, the Entebbe–Kampala Expressway The government of Uganda has secured funding of US$91 million UShs322 billion to fund the 23 kilometres 14 mi section between Busega and Mpigi The 95 kilometres 6 mi section between Kibuye and Busega is to be expanded by China Communications Construction Company CCCC, with funding from the Exim Bank of China, once CCCC has completed the Entebbe-Kampala Expressway

Timetable

In 2014, the China Communications Construction Company, which is constructing the Entebbe–Kampala Expressway intersecting with the Kampala–Mpigi Expressway, was contracted to construct that interchange at Busega and to construct 9 kilometres 6 mi on the latter to save money and time In December 2016, the Daily Monitor reported that construction was expected to begin in 2018 and last three years

Construction costs

Application for funding has been made to the African Development Bank ADB The estimated cost of the road was budgeted at approximately US$100 million, as reported by the Daily Monitor Another source, however, has put the cost at US$350 million The cost is now budgeted at US$91 million loan from ADB plus $41 million contributed by the government of Uganda
