Uganda: Kabakanjagala Road Under Construction

Kabakanjagala Road is a road laden with history. It connects Mengo Palace to Buganda's government seat, Bulange. However, in the recent past, this road has been more famous for forever being potholed than for being trekked upon by royal feet.

Fortunately, royals and subjects alike can enjoy smooth rides since Kampala Capital City Authority has embarked on reconstructing the dilapidated road.

The sh6.8b reconstruction works by Stirling Construction Company that commenced last month are expected to last eight months.

The project also involves the reconstruction of two other roads; Nabunnya and Ssekabaka Kintu.

The project has seen the felling of the decades-old kabakanjagala trees (which give the road its name) to enable the expansion works for this road.

Peter Kaujju, the KCCA spokesperson said several other city-centre and divisional roads are being reconstructed while others have already been repaired and upgraded in order to reduce mud and dust and ease the flow of traffic.

Other roads under reconstruction include Lourdel Road in the Wandegeya suburb.
