Kampala-Entebbe Expressway. East Africa's First Freeway
Kampala-Entebbe Expressway is a 51 kilometre four lane toll freeway alias motorway that stretches from Uganda's capital Kampala to Entebbe International Airport. Construction of the freeway began in 2012 by China Communication Construction Company and completed in 2018 at a cost of $476 million.
