The Uganda National Roads Authority has kicked off the construction of a 39-kilometer Namagumba-Budadiri-Nalugugu road in Sironko District.

While launching the project on Wednesday, June 5, 2024, on behalf of the President, Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja said the five-year project is being funded by the European Union, the World Bank, and Japan International Cooperation.

According to her, the project is estimated to cost Shs129 billion, including the resettlement of affected persons.

She said once the road is completed, it will improve transport access in the area by linking the population with economic opportunities.

The construction work will be undertaken by Shandong Luqiao, a Chinese company.

During the launch, PM Nabbanja noted that the project is aligned with Uganda’s Vision 2040 as it seeks to harness the country’s potential growth opportunities in agriculture, tourism, strategic geographical location, and trade.

She also presided over the national celebration of World Environment Day in Sironko on Wednesday, June 5th 2024.

Recently, two major markets, including Top Market in Zesui Sub County and Kipande in Namaguli Sub County in Sironko, were closed due to appalling road status.
