Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) handed over site to IBB International Ltd, the project contractor for construction of a new Security Search Park at Entebbe International Airport on Wednesday, October 31, 2018.
CAA’s Managing Director, Dr. David Kakuba, handed over the site to IBB International Ltd.’s team comprising of Mr. Emmanuel Byaruhanga and CEO, Mr. Don Mubiri, among others. He urged the contractor to strictly adhere to the timelines stipulated in the contract.
Speaking on behalf of the Contractor, Mr. Byaruhanga thanked CAA for the working relationship and pledged IBB International Ltd’s “Commitment to deliver the Project” in line with the expectations.
The project, expected to be undertaken in six months from November 1,
2018 is to comprise of two additional road lanes on top of the current two lanes to the airport to make a total of four lanes covering an area of about 450 metres. It will be a covered area with appropriate shelter for the security search team, motorists and people entering the Airport.
The project site is located between Protea Hotel and the CAA Head office on the road to Entebbe International Airport. On completion of the project, the Security Search point at the Airport gate used by Aviation Police will be relocated to the new site.
The move is expected to enhance efficiency and service provision as the four lanes will decongest the area and enable faster movement of traffic into the airport.
