The Uganda National Roads Authority expects to begin construction of the remaining 17.5 kilometer single lane of the northern
bypass this year.
The Kampala northern by pass is a twenty one km road of which 17.5km is single lane, while 3.5km from Gayaza through Kalerwe to Hoima road is a dual carriage.
The Public Relations Officer of the authority Daniel Alinange says currently they are in the process of procuring a contractor and land for the remaining stretch of the road.
Alinage says the 17.5km single lane road will cost about Sh.40 billion.
