The Kampala Jinja Expressway forms part of the northern trade corridor from Mombasa in Kenya through to Kigali in Rwanda. This is a strategic corridor which serves as a trade link to the sea for land-linked countries of Uganda, Rwanda and DRC.
Kampala Jinja Expressway (KJE) is one of five expressway projects identified in the Vision 2040 and National Development Plan II as critical for the economic development of Uganda. In line with this aspiration, KJE was designed to an expressway standard in line with Government objectives and consistent with the country’s expressway network. The expressways are being constructed to the same standard and together they will form a network that will enable quick mobility of vehicles within and around Kampala and surrounding areas.
