The Ministry of Works, Housing and Communication has unveiled a three-year national road safety action plan and a five-year road safety improvement programme.
Speaking in Arua recently, Minister John Nasasira, said the two plans, would cost $2.5b and be completed by 2010/2011.
He said the 1996 road reforms would be implemented under the 10-year programme and the road safety action plan would cater for the Police traffic highway patrol unit.
He said a highway code and driving and training syllabus would be developed and road safety education be incorporated in the school curriculum.
