Kampala City Roads Rehabilitation Project (KCRRP)
This project is aimed at increasing the stock and quality of strategic infrastructure to accelerate Uganda’s competitiveness. Kampala requires significant infrastructural investments to shore up its productivity and ease of doing business.
This 48 months project is worth US$ 288 Million and this loan was effective July 2021. The project is funded by the African Development Bank and African Development Fund, and is implemented by Kampala Capital City Authority-KCCA.
Specific objectives of the proposed project are two-fold:
- To enhance transport efficiency thereby enabling the City of Kampala to maximize agglomerative benefits of access and improved attractiveness resulting from reduced traffic congestion through upgrade and expansion of road network; and
- To improve air quality in the city through implementation of Scheduled Eco-Bus transit Services and broadening travel choices for non-vehicular movements within Kampala by expanding networks of walkways and cycling tracks.
