Uganda: Kampala Roads Upgraded

The upgrading of the Ush18b ($6.9m) roads by Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) in Kawempe (located 5 miles north of Kampala city) has created a marked trade boost in the area.

According to Peter Kaujju the spokesperson of KCCA, the road that is in its final stages of construction has opened a good transport network and business opportunities for the people in the region.

"The road has contributed greatly to traffic decongestion along the major routes of Gayaza-Kampala and Bombo road in the morning and evening hours," he noted. Persons are looking to investing along the road."

In a bid to reduce traffic bottlenecks in the city, the World Bank gave KCCA Ush18b to pave three roads in Nakawa and Kawempe divisions. The money is a boost to the Ush45b ($17m) allocated by central government this financial year towards maintaining city roads.

The roads under upgrade include the Kalerwe - Ttula road (3.3km) and Kawempe - Mpererwe (2.6km). The other road is the Bukoto - Kisaasi road (3km). While launching the road works in April last year, KCCA Executive Director Jennifer Musisi said the roads would be built to modern standards, and completed in ten months by Energo Construction Company.
