Entebbe Bypass Highway Thru Kawali update

Posted on October 28, 2015 at 2:35 AM

The Entebbe Express Highway project continues to progress. In Phase 1 of the project, the highway has been constructed in non-residential areas. During Phase 2 of the project, residents will be paid a ‘fair market value’ for their property and be displaced as the highway runs through villages. During Phase 3 of the project, the road will be paved and somehow toll markers will be established.

 

Currently, the project is nearing the end of Phase 1. Here is Kajjansi the highway has been constructed through the Kawali area connecting Mutungo to Kajjansi. The road is open for public usage and being used as a short-cut access road for cars, boda-boda motorcycles, people walking and even moving cattle. There is a detour road into Kajjansi where the current highway construction has stopped.

 

During Phase 2 when the highway in Kawali is connected through Kajjansi, hundreds of people will lose their homes, businesses, and even a church. While they will be compensated, this new road will cause some incredible changes to the area. SMK will actually be on the other side of the highway, thus eliminating the easy access to Kajjansi.

 

As I have shared before, Kajjansi will actually be the intersection point between this new Express Highway and the existing Entebbe Road. While it is still unclear how the roads will intersect (like either a round-about or an overpass), there is presently a lot of work happening in that area!

 

There will always be changes as development occurs, so we will adapt to a new way of doing things when the time comes. Will continue to keep you posted with more updates as they happen.
