The Most Expensive Road In The World Is In East Africa, Here is The Country Where It Is Located

The World's Most Expensive Road is in East Africa, and this is the country where it is located.

Africa is rapidly developing, necessitating the installation of cutting-edge transportation systems. Trillions of dollars have been spent on infrastructure, the most of which has gone to tarmacing roads.

Uganda has not been left behind, having recently completed the world's most expensive road project.

The road is described in more detail below.

The Kampala-Entebbe expressway connects the Northern Bypass at Busega in Kampala, Uganda's capital city, to Entebbe International Airport, the country's busiest airport.

The highway cost the East African nation a staggering $476 million to build, with a staggering cost of $9.2 million per kilometer, far beyond the typical $2 million per kilometer road.

It's worth noting that the Kampala-Entebbe Expressway has a total length of 2,770 meters, including 19 flyovers and bridges. Nambigirwa Bridge, with a length of nearly 1,400 meters, is Uganda's and East Africa's largest four-lane bridge.

The Government of Uganda and the Export-Import Bank of China jointly funded the Kampala-Entebbe Expressway project (Exim Bank)
