A team of Kampala Capital City Authority, (KCCA) and World Bank officials on Thursday inspected and toured the World Bank funded projects in the city.

The KCCA team, led by Jennifer Musisi and Senior Urban Specialist World Bank Martin Onyach-Olaa, inspected the completed and partially constructed city junctions of Fairway, Kira- Bukoto, Kasubi, Nakulabye, Makerere and Sir Apollo Kaggwa.

The project co-ordinator of the second Kampala Institutional and Infrastructure Development Project (KIIDP) at KCCA, Charles Tumwebaze, told World Bank officials that despite some interruptions in the project, the contractor has completed Fairway, Mambule, Kira, Makerere, Bakuli and Bwaise and works will be handed over to KCCA by the end of the year.

Tumwebaze said all the junctions are redesigned with walkways, traffic lights and street lights as part of the project contract.

 

 

Plans by KCCA indicate that it will upgrade about 92km of roads and also install traffic lights at major road junctions, under the KIIDP II World Bank project.

The roads on the first phase of the project include reconstruction and widening of Makerere Hill Road (from Wandegeya to Nakulabye) into a dual carriage way (four-lanes). Traffic lights will also be installed at four junctions including Makerere University, Gadhafi Road, Sir Apollo Kaggwa Road and Nakulabye junctions.

The road from Bakuli through Nakulabye to Kasubi along Hoima Road will also be widened to four-lanes, in addition to putting traffic lights at the Bakuli and Kasubi junctions.

KCCA roads cover 2,100km, of which 80% have been rehabilitated.

The five-year project is estimated to cost $175m (approx. sh638b), of which $10m (about sh28.6b) will be contributed by the Ugandan government.

The China Railway Seventh Group, Co (CRSG) Limited was contracted to carry out works on the road.
