THE construction works for the Kampala-Mityana road are behind schedule, a top official said this week.

The works for the 56km road were expected to be ready last year, but are still ongoing, Dan Alinange, the Uganda National Roads Authority spokesperson, said.

He explained that although the works, which commenced in July, 2009 were progressing, they were expected to last only one year.

The construction is being undertaken by DOT Services, Spencon Services and Sterling.

Alinange disclosed that everything was being done to ensure that the construction works are completed in the possible shortest period.

Meanwhile, Spencon has started mobilising equipment on site for the sh7b Nalubale Bridge rehabilitation works in Jinja.

The works will be done at night to allow for smooth traffic flow Alinange, said.

He said repairs on the 50- year-old bridge will include strengthening the existing deck slabs, replacement of the deck drainage and ancillary bridge parts.

It will also involve resurfacing the deck with asphalt concrete and the underwater repairs to be reinforced with concrete pillars, Alinange noted.
