NAKASEKE district has launched a sh170m project to rehabilitate 114km of impassable feeder roads in eight sub-counties. The acting district engineer, Arnold Mugwanya, said the roads to be fixed include the Kiwoko-Nakaseke road (16km), Kiwoko-Kasambya (23km), Kalagala-Semutoâ€“Kalege (22km) and Kaddunda-Kisimula (4km).
Other are the Namusaale-Lusanja road (8km), Lwesindiziâ€“Kinoni (11km), Kalagalaâ€“Mugyenyi (10.5km), Nakasekeâ€“Kigegge (12km), Kiwokoâ€“Kalagala and the Nabisojjo-Gayaza-Kiswaga road (3km).
Mugwanya was on Saturday speaking at the launch of the project at Bwanga village. The launch was presided over by the LC5 chairperson, Ignatius Koomu.
He said two local firms, Best Way Contractors and Bwanswa Contractors, had been contracted to do mechanised spot improvement, while the routine maintenance will be undertaken by local labour-based contractors.
Koomu explained that most roads were in a poor state because they had not been rehabilitated since Nakaseke became a district in 2005.
