KIGALI, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese-built road upgrading project in Rwanda has helped ease traffic and facilitate the flow of goods in the country.

The upgraded road, stretching 13.8 km, links the Sonatube roundabout in Rwanda's capital Kigali and the Akagera bridge in the Bugesera district.

It forms part of an avenue leading to Rwanda's new Bugesera International Airport located 40 km south of the Kigali International Airport.

China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) started the project in 2019.

Due to factors including the COVID-19 pandemic, it took the company more than three years to upgrade the two-way, two-lane urban road.
