City Authority publicist Peter Kaujju told Chimpreports in an exclusive interview on Friday 1,700 kms will be demarcated in the next few days.

“We are looking at creating highway management systems that will regulate the traffic flow,” Kaujju said.

Initially, Kampala was planned in 1980s to handle 150,000 motor vehicles, but currently the city handles over 800,000 motor vehicles on a daily basis.

Fugro and TRL, the companies contracted to conduct this exercise will majorly use the Aerial view system in which choppers with gadgets attached to them perform the actual mapping and surveying.

However, in some areas where the exercise has already started like Masanafu, Kajjansi, Kyambogo and others, some residents have expressed fears that the exercise is intended to have their land grabbed.

“In fact, we do not understand what this exercise is about, their motive could be grabbing our land; but we shall not allow this exercise to continue without our knowledge,” lamented Dan Maseruka, one of the residents in Kyambogo.
