Roadworks Estimated at Shs13 Billion Begin in Uganda

Posted on : Tuesday, 12th April 2016

Kabale — Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda has cautioned contractors not to delay completion of government projects, especially in the road sector.

 
Dr Rugunda, who was last Friday presiding over a ground-breaking ceremony for the construction and tarmacking of three feeder roads in Kabale Municipality, said delayed government projects not only increase the cost of such projects but also delay delivery of services to the people who need them.
 
The two-kilometre road network, which includes Nyerere Road and Nyerere and Kigongi avenues in Kabale Municipality, will be constructed by Stones Construction Company and is expected to be completed in 12 months. It will cost Shs13b.
 
Mr Lauben Ntengyerize, the Kabale District deputy town clerk, said Kabele is among the 14 selected municipalities that benefited from the Uganda Support to Municipal Infrastructure Development project funded by the World Bank.
 
Similar projects are being implemented in the municipalities of Entebbe, Mbarara, Kabale, Masaka, Fort Portal, Gulu, Lira, Soroti, Arua, Hoima, Mbale, Tororo, Jinja and Moroto.
 
"Government borrowed about $150m (Shs502b) from the World Bank and the main objective is infrastructure development for proper urbanization," he said.
