Uganda to Kenya town bypass roads project opens for bidding

The Government of Kenya has received a loan from the African Development Bank to finance the Multinational Uganda – Kenya: Kapchorwa to Suam to Kitale & Eldoret Town Bypass Roads Project.

The Project is a multinational operation that provides an important link between Uganda and Kenya by connecting through the border post of Suam.

The Kenya side of the project road is Suam to Kitale and Eldoret Town Bypass.

The project road supports the regional integration objective of member countries of East African Community (EAC) and Great Lakes Region, especially Uganda and Kenya by connecting to Suam and further linking with Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and South Sudan.

This is a transformative project that will contribute to socio-economic development, poverty reduction and regional integration in eastern Uganda and western Kenya. The project will also improve traffic congestion within Eldoret town along the Northern Corridor.
