Kampala-Jinja Highway

Kampala-Jinja Highway is a road in Uganda, connecting the cities of Kampala and Jinja. Sometimes referred to as Kampala-Jinja Road, it is a busy road, with several towns, trading centers and other landmarks along the way.


The highway stretches from Kampala, Uganda's largest city and capital to Jinja, the country's second largest commercial center, a distance of approximately 86 kilometres (53 mi). [1]


The highway is an all-weather tarmac single carriageway road in good condition. The highway forms a section of the road system that connects the East African cities of Bujumbura, (Burundi), Kigali, (Rwanda) and Kampala, (Uganda) to Nairobi, (Kenya) and ultimately to the Kenyan port of Mombasa. The road is a vital commercial link to the outside world for the three land-locked countries.[2]


Some of the landmarks along or near the Kampala-Jinja Highway include:
