Home New Bridge across River Nile at Jinja
Located 80km east of the business capital Kampala, and 500 meters south of the existing Kampala-Jinja Highway, the project consisted of the construction of a new three span 525m long cable-stayed bridge across the River Nile at Jinja.
With a main span of 290m, the 22.9m wide prestressed concrete box girder accommodates two traffic lanes and one walkway (7.0 m carriageway + 2.2 m walkway) in each direction.
It is supported by a single plane of cable stays anchored in the middle of the girder. 82.2 m high inverted Y pylons, made of reinforced concrete were adopted. The new bridge is cable-stayed with the longest clear-span length in Eastern Africa.
The overall project objective is to improve the Northern Corridor Route which forms a major link for Uganda and its landlocked Central African neighbouring countries to the coastal port of Mombasa via Uganda and Kenya.
