Shs42 Billion Entebe Airport Expansion Starts

By Stephen Kafeero

Kampala — Government yesterday launched a Shs42.6b project to expand Entebbe International Airport's departure and arrival terminals.

President Museveni in August last year, launched a $200m expansion works on the airport but Mr John Byabagambi, the Works minister, said the project he was launching was independent of what the president had commissioned.

He said President Museveni launched "a mega project" which includes the expansion of the terminal buildings, building more aero bridges, a cargo centre that could be 10 times bigger than the existing one.
