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 9th November, 2018 for a period of 21 days.
During this period, some sections of Jinja road crossing will be closed to motorists and traffic will be diverted to alternative routes.
The excavation works will be done in two phases to allow proper traffic management and minimize traffic disruptions.
Normal time of work shall be through the night. Based on the nature of works, it will take twelve days (12 days) to complete phase 1, 2 and 3 of the pipe installation.
All the reinstatements of the road pavement will be done within another nine working days (9 working days).
During shift three of the road crossing, heavy trucks will be diverted to 5th, 6th and 7th streets.
Motorists that use Jinja Road crossing along Electoral commission and Centenary Park are advised to use alternative routes during this period to avoid travel delays.
NWSC is working jointly with Uganda Police and Kampala City Authority to ensure that the sewer works and traffic diversion are managed with minimum inconvenience. Any inconveniences are regretted.
