The Hoima-Butiaba-Wanseko road upgrading process kicks off
Uganda National Roads Authority has started the upgrading process of Hoima-Butiaba-Wanseko road by undertaking a feasibility study and getting a detailed design of the works.
The upgrading process of the 111km road , one of the major corridors serving the Albertine oil region , is expected to take 12 months.
Besides prioritizing improvement of infrastructure in the oil, tourism and agricultural regions, the Government is also constructing Hoima-Kaiso-Tonya road (92km) and works on the Kigumba-Masindi- Hoima-Bulima-Kabwoya-Kyenjojo (240km) will start in the first half of 2014.
Dan Alinange, the UNRA head of corporate communications said once the design is complete, then the affected properties and property owners will be identified and compensated before works start.
