While commissioning the road on Wednesday, Kagimu said this is part of the ongoing upgrading of roads outside Mukono business area to ease the congestion and traffic along Kampala-Jinja highway.

“The work is to cost shs1.3bn and to be completed in the next financial year will see the road upgraded from gravel to a bituminous double surface dressing murrum road,” he said.

The road is the access route to offices of the Mengo government chief Ssekiboobo Benjamin Kigongo  in Ggulu ward.

 



Kagimu said that besides easing congestion on the international Kampala-Jinja highway, there is also the objective of opening up commercial opportunities by providing access to all areas of the town.

"Today the Industrial Area is fast turning into a business hub and we are soon shifting the taxi park from its present location in the heart of the town to this location (industrial area), and all this will mean making it a busier place needing good roads", he said.

He added that in the past the town has had one major road crossing in it, and added that the council is now bent on creating more avenues to ease movement and to widen the town.

Kagimu also noted that part of the road reserve had been encroached upon by the residents saying that the construction is to make sure that all the land belonging to the road is cleared after talking to the affected parties.

The mayor listed other infrastructure developments put in place in the past one year in office, including completion of a major HIV/ACT centre serving residents, installation of street lights in Seeta town, construction  of teachers staff quarters in a number of government aided primary schools, and beginning construction  of a youth centre.

The Municipal Engineer Josiah Sserunjogi said the work on the road is to be undertaken in phases given the releases from the national road fund which he said are to be released in phases.
