President Museveni Flags Off The Construction Of Rwekunye-Apac Road
President Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Kaguta Museveni flagged off the construction of the Rwenkunye—Apac road (90.9kms) and Apac-Lira—Puranga road (100.1kms).
Writing on his social media yesterday, The President said that Government is undertaking these projects with the support of the Islamic Development Bank and that these roads will increase connectivity in the region, facilitate trade and help exploit the agricultural opportunities in the area.
Museveni also revealed that the road from Tororo to Kamdini will be redone because of the traffic volume headed to South Sudan therefore there’s a need to make it stronger and wider.
“It will become a four-lane road, 18 meters wide with walkways. We are also designing a cable-stayed bridge at Masonville port like the one of Jinja,” He noted.
Museveni said the Government will construct more roads like the one from Dokolo to Namasale to the lake, shortening the distance between Lango, Nakasongola, and Kampala.
“In the future, we shall have a road from Soroti- Obalanga- Amudat- Acholi-Pi. The plans are many and as our revenue improves, more of these projects will be executed,” Museveni added.
He apologized to the people of Lira town for not stopping to greet them and warned them against gathering measures especially in the presence of the COVID-19.
