(Ecofin Agency) - Construction works of Kabaale airport, Uganda’s second international airport, have commenced in the country’s western district of Hoima.

Aero News reported that the facility’s commissioning is scheduled for 2021. According to Solel Boneh International (SBI), the international arm of the Israeli holding Shikun & Binui, which conducts works, activities such as clearing, access road construction and fencing, are progressing well.

Authorities said the new airport will open up the region, which has great oil potential including the Kaiso-Tonya oil fields and the national oil refinery, notably.

Let’s note that the infrastructure, estimated at $309 million, is set to have a 3.5 km runway and cover 29 km².
