KAMPALA, UGANDA: Motorists intending to access the city centre from Entebbe road will have to use other routes as the road will be closed to vehicles due to the ongoing work on the Kampala Flyover Project, the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) has announced.
According to UNRA, the traffic on Queen’s Way will also be diverted for some time and the traffic flow from the city centre along Entebbe Road towards the clock tower junction will not be affected by these changes and will smoothly proceed normally and there will be controlled traffic flow to and from the city centre.
Consequently, in order to minimize traffic congestion, motorists from Kibuye roundabout are advised to access Lubiri Ring Road and Lubaga Road, while motorists from Gaba Road are directed to use the Mukwano Road route.
Drivers from USAFI roundabout – Mengo Hill Road can access the city centre through Ben Kiwanuka Street or other connecting roads.
Motorists have also been advised to avoid the clock tower junction wherever possible and to obey traffic management guidelines while driving.
The Kampala Flyover Road Project, also Kampala Flyover Project, is a road-improvement project in the Central Division of Kampala, the capital city of Uganda and the largest city in that East African country.
The project involves the construction of flyovers at the “Clock Tower”, and at “Kitgum House” near the former Electoral Commission headquarters, the widening of Nsambya Road and of Mukwano Road, including the improvements of interfacing roads and junctions.
In total, the project will stretch over an estimated 3.5 kilometres (2 mi) and is financed by the Government of Japan through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
