UNRA to repair Jinja Kampala highway

By Deo Wasswa
Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) is set to commence emergency repairs of some sections of Kampala-Mukono- Jinja highways.

The planned work is intended to improve the pavement surface for road user comfort and reduce on the prevailing traffic queuing along the section as a result of poor road surface.

According to Mark Ssali UNRA spokesperson, the project which is expected to last for 9 months for the stretch between spear motors (Nakawa) and Mukono will commence on Saturday 13th July 2019.

Addressing press in Kampala today, Ssali said the first phase of emergency repair will take place in the section between Bweyogerere flyover and Namanve.

He says construction will be done at night between 11pm and 5 am to enable normal traffic flow during day time.

The 13 billion shillings project has been contracted by Energy project-Niskogradnia.
