Govt Begins on Kaliro-Buyende Road Project

Government has started working on the road project that is on over 80km murram road from Kaliro town in Kaliro district to Irundu landing site in Buyende district.

The minister in charge of co-operatives, Fred Ngobi Gume said the contract, worth sh13.9b, would change the face of both Kaliro and Buyende districts.

The Minister, who is also the Bulamogi North Member of Parliament, encouraged unemployed youths in the region to take advantage of the road project to get jobs, so as to boost their household incomes.

The site engineer John Etolu said two companies are to handle the project contracted to them by the Uganda National Roads Authority.

The companies are Hans (Uganda) Limited and Uganda Martyrs Construction Company who got the contract in October last year.
