Here is the Most Expensive Road in the World Located in Uganda: A good number of African countries are on track towards building state of art roads to connect different parts of the country. This has in turn put Africa to be world map. However, some of its countries are still lagging behind due to corruption and intensive embezzlement of funds. Africa is fast developing hence a need to put up ultra-modern means of transport in the continent.
We have witnessed trillions of money being spent on infrastructure and mostly on the tarmacking of roads. Uganda has not been left any inch behind after they recorded the most expensive road ever to be built in the world. Here are some details about the road. We are not sure whether the road is really worth the amount or embezzlement of funds might have chipped in.
The Kampala- Entebbe 51 kilometer expressway has attracted the attention of many after it was constructed at a total cost of U.S $476 million. This translates down to $9.2 million. The express highway is a 4 lane road connecting the Entebbe international airport to the Kampala city. Doesn’t the road look amazing?
An average tarmacked road can spend up to $2 million per kilometer to complete. The Ugandan one spent $9.2 million per kilometer making it too expensive. Was the road worth for the Museveni lead government? Was the road over-budgeted for? Free free to comment.
Compared to the price of building other roads in the world, this highway remains the most expensive in the world. Various leaders have come out to condemn the hiked prices of the road but the Museveni led government has not yet responded. This is not the first time Museveni is coming under pressure due to how he runs the country. He has been severally condemned due to having his family members as part of the cabinet. His son serves as the commander of the army and many claimed that Museveni has overstayed in power. Which way Africa?
