Second international airport in the pipelines in Uganda



Uganda is on the verge of establishing its second international airport, Kabaale International Airport according to a report by the New Vision.

Uganda has entered a joint venture with a UK company Colas and a local company SBc Uganda for the construction process. The two companies submitted a proposal to Uganda’s Minister for Works and Transport, Monica Azuba Ntege before the country’s Attorney General William Byaruhanga and the British Deputy High Commissioner Mary Shockledge.

The project is likely to kick off in 2017 since substantial amount of land for the project has already been procured and the environmental impact assessment done according to the Project Coordinator at the ministry Eng. Tony Kavuma told the New Vision

The Kabale International Airport project will impact Western Uganda region positively with immediate benefits of movement of materials and manpower facilitation expected and long term benefits to tourism and agriculture in the region expected to grow.
