Why is the Uganda SGR said to be more expensive than other projects in the region?

Uganda SGR cost is comparable and cost effective. The cost is majorly dependent on the number of bridges/viaducts, the super large bridges like that over the Nile, the geotechnical conditions, the topography that must be attenuated to attain the right gradient.  There are 24 km of bridges planned and 53km in in swamps and soft grounds. The biggest challenge is not comparing likes for likes. Further information is available on the SGR website.
