China to Lend Uganda $100 Million for Road Maintenance

Nov. 2 (Bloomberg) -- China will lend Uganda $100 million for upgrading and maintaining roads, the African country’s works and transport ministry said.

The money will add to the 259 billion shillings ($113 million) the government has budgeted for fixing and resealing 5,650 kilometers (3,510 miles) of roads, the ministry said today in a statement distributed in the capital, Kampala.

At least 2,000 kilometers of district roads will be rehabilitated, 3,500 kilometers will receive periodic maintenance, and 150 kilometers of city roads will be resealed under the program, the ministry said. Uganda has a backlog of 10,000 kilometers of roads that it plans to fix over the next five years, it said.
