The 234km road that stretches from Karuma through Pakwach and Nebbi to Arua, has been under construction since July 2001 by three contractors. Two of the contractors finished their work some time back.

China Chongqing International Construction Corporation, who experienced persistent delays in finishing the 62.5km Pakwach-Agung section, finally handed over the road to the Government last week.

Other firms that worked on the road included, SBI International Holdings and the China Road and Bridge Corporation.

“This is to notify you that the work on the above project has been completed and has passed completion tests prescribed by the contract,” the project engineers, Black and Veatch, noted in a letter to the Road Agency Formation Unit (RAFU).

Speaking at the handover ceremony in Pakwach last week, the manager of the engineering division at RAFU, Peter Ssebanakitta, hailed the contractors for repairing the road despite the fact that they started the project when the LRA rebels were staging ambushes along the route.
