UNRA: Kayunga Ferry Service Closed for Maintenance

The Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) has said that the ferry connecting Kayunga to Kamuli District will be interrupted in its normal routine of service starting Monday, nurse October 31st.

According to a statement released by UNRA management on Monday, the interruption will stay for a week (up to Friday, November 4th), to allow the Authority’s technical team carry out service maintenance.

“The interruption is to allow our technical team carry out routine service maintenance on the ferry and to guarantee safety of users,” the statement reads in part.

Mbalamuti ferry connects Kayunga and Kamuli Districts across River Nile.

Commissioned in 2014, the ferry operates on a daily basis (Monday to Sunday), making an average of 15 trips per day.

It has the capacity to accommodate up to 120 passengers and 8 vehicles per trip and weighs 90 tonnes.

UNRA has since advised the public to use the Kayunga-Njeru-Jinja road as an alternative route in the meantime as the technical team does the maintenance.
