Motorists that use Jinja Road crossing along Electoral commission and Centenary Park in Kampala city have been advised to use alternative routes for the next 21 days starting tomorrow (November 9) over planned excavation and installation of sewer pipes.
National Water and Sewerage Cooperation (NWSC) said Thursday said it will take 12 days to complete phase I, II and II of the pipe installation but all the reinstatements of the road pavement will be done within another nine working days.
“Government of Uganda is building new sewer lines for the growing population of Kampala City. NWSC has accordingly contracted Sogea Satom to excavate and lay sewer lines along Jinja road between Electoral commission and Centenary Park from November 9, 2018 for a period of 21 days. The excavation works will be done in two phases to allow proper traffic management and minimize traffic disruptions,” reads part of the statement issued by NWSC senior Manager Public Relations, Mr Samuel Apedel.
Normal time of work shall be through the night.
“During shift three of the road crossing, heavy trucks will be diverted to 5th, 6th and 7th streets. Motorists that use that road section are advised to use alternative routes during this period to avoid travel delays. NWSC is working jointly with Uganda Police and Kampala City Authority (KCCA) to ensure that the sewer works and traffic diversion are managed with minimum inconvenience,” he added.
