Ssezibwa bridge reconstruction to take 18 months – UNRA

The delapidated Ssezibwa Bridge along Mukono-Kayunga Highway

Kayunga, (UG):- The Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) Thursday revealed that construction works for the new Ssezibwa Bridge along the Mukono-Kayunga highway have finally kicked off with the project set to take 18 months.

While handing over the construction to DYNACO Ltd, the selected site contractor UNRA’s contract manager, Eng. Martin Kitayimbwa said the first six months of the allocated period will be for the design of the new bridge.

“We are going to replace the old bridge with a new one which is going to be longer and also raise the road because this section floods a lot,” Eng Kitayimbwa said while handing over the contract to the contractor on Thursday, June 20, in Kayunga.

At the same function, UNRA also announced Professional Engineering Consultants as the company selected to provide consultancy services for the project.

DYNACO Ltd’s Managing Director, Eng. Jonathan Tugume said they would ensure quality work, quoted in verbatim; “We normally exceed quality expectations of the contract.”

Eng. Lawrence Pario, head of bridges at UNRA said they are going to construct an Arch -bridge which he said is not only durable but beautiful.

Constructed in the early 1950s, the old Ssezibwa bridge is now dilapidated and only being used by light vehicles after it developed cracks and some sections caved last year.
