Uganda Road Sector Support Initiatives (URSSI) is currently working with the World Bank to develop a road monitoring tool.

This tool will guide communities to monitor road works within their vicinity.

URSSI is a civil society organisation working in the roads and transport sector.

Sam Mutabazi, the URSSI executive director, was speaking recently during a stakeholders meeting held in Hotel Africana on improving road networks in Uganda.

He called on road stakeholders to give projects under Uganda National Road Authority prominence.

“We have already given this public prominence to projects like the Kampala Northern Bypass, Nile Bridge and Kampala-Entebbe Expressway,” Mutabazi said.

Mutabazi called on all stakeholders to regulate the real estate industry because it has contributed to unplanned development. He also called on the Government to promote vertical rather than horizontal construction of buildings to ensure optimal land use.

Mutabazi also added that cities in the Albertine Graben have been declared a national planning area.

“We expect the region to have well planned cities with wide roads to avoid an urban sprawl characteristic of oil production areas,” he said.
