First publishedon www.WorldHighways.com
Uganda's Aswa Bridge and Mbarara-Katuna highway will be repaired in a deal worth US$160 million. Work on the upgrades will commence towards the end of 2010 with the repairs and improvements to the 164km highway expected to use most of the resources supplied. The projects will boost safety and cut travel times as well as cutting maintenance needs. The European Union is providing some of the money required while the Ugandan Government will contribute the remainder, although the exact split has not been revealed at this stage.
