Museveni flags off construction of new roads in Northern Uganda

NEWS- President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has today 21st October 2020, flagged off the construction of 2 roads in Apac District which are, the Rwenkunye—Apac road which has a total of 90.9 kms and Apac-Lira—Puranga road with a total of  100.1kms.

According to a statement from State House, the Government of Uganda is undertaking the construction of these roads with support of the Islamic Development Bank.

While commissioning the construction of the roads President Museveni said that the roads will increase connectivity in the region, facilitate trade and help exploit the agricultural opportunities in the area.

The President also revealed that the road from Tororo all the way to Kamdini, will be done afresh. 

“We now have a lot of traffic headed to South Sudan using this road and it will be made stronger and wider so that it becomes a four-lane road, 18 metres wide with walkways,” President Museveni assured. 

Uganda’s road network has greatly improved under the NRM government with tarmac roads stretching from boarder to boarder and this has been one the greatest achievement of the ruling government. 

Uganda also intends to extend the good road network to her neighbors like Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan in order to boost regional trade. 

In related development, President Museveni also revealed that the government is set to construct another bridge like the one in Jinja.

 “We are also designing a cable-stayed bridge at Masonville port like the one of Jinja,” He said.

He added that, among the many plans and as the country’s revenue improves, more of these projects will be executed and the  Government will construct more roads like the one from Dokolo to Namasale to the lake, shortening the distance between Lango, Nakasongola and Kampala and in the future, we shall have a road from Soroti- Obalanga- Amudat- Acholi-Pi.
