The Traffic police have cleared Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) to proceed with road repairs on the Jinja highway.
UNRA spokesperson, Mark Ssali, said the road repairs will start from Spears Motors junction in Nakawa Division in Kampala to Mukono Municipality.
Ssali said the 3.5km stretch will cost 13.5 billion shillings and the contract was awarded to Energo Project.
The project is expected to be completed in a nine months’ time. UNRA said the scope will include repairing pavement and laying the crushed stones.
The public have been complaining about potholes in the middle of the road and deep trenches dug by running water.
Kampala Metropolitan traffic police commander Norman Musiinga, said road repairs will be strictly done from 11 pm to 5 am.
