THE construction of the 42km-Matugga-Semuto–Kapeeka road is on course and will be completed as planned, Dan Alinange, the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) spokesman, has said.

“The road will boost the general livelihood of the Luweero Triangle communities, which were severely affected in the 1980s liberation war. They will now be able to sell their produce as access to the market will be made easy,” said Alinange.

He said the transport cost for both passengers and goods is expected to reduce with the completion of theis road.

“Local communities have again benefited more with the road as many are being employed as manual workers.”

China Chongqing International Construction Corporation is undertaking the project, which started in 2009 and is expected to be completed in December.

The Government has in the last three financial years allocated trillions of shillings to improve roads in the country.
