The improvement in the city of Kampala is an amazing site to see and all credit goes to Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA).
Over the past couple of months, Kampala’s infrastructure has been changing and offering a new outlook that befits a city status. The city has seen the expanded road network with signalised junctions to street solar-powered lights which has bolsters the city’s economic growth.
In 2015, a road inventory was carried-out and it was established that the city had a total road network of 2,110kms. These made the government and development partners to invest in the project which is giving the city a new facelift.
The agency got funding from World Bank through the Kampala Institutional and Infrastructural Development Project (KIIDP) that bankrolled the upgrade of major city roads to Bitumen while others have been maintained with dual lanes.
