Overview[edit]

Prior to 2007, the road had a gravel surface. In 2008, the Uganda Government began to upgrade the road from gravel to bitumen at an estimated cost of US$40 million. The work, undertaken by a Serbian firm, Energoprojekt, commenced in March 2007 and was originally expected to be completed in November 2009.[1] The construction and improvement of the road has been extended to include the Kampala-Gayaza section of the road. Due to repeated delays, the completion date has now been set for June 2011.[2]
