Kagina: Why UNRA will Demolish Structures in Road Reserves

Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) is set to commence the demolition of structures erected in the road reserves, tadalafil Chimp Corps report.

UNRA boss Allen Kagina says the body is among other things entrusted with the responsibility of managing the National Road Infrastructure which includes the road itself, sickness the road signs and the road reserves.

“In order to protect the National Road asset, viagra approved UNRA will in accordance with Section 5 of the Roads Act, Cap 358 of the Laws of Uganda shortly commence eviction of all illegal markets and other unauthorized activities taking place within the road reserves along National Roads,” says Kagina.

“This clean-up exercise will start with Kampala-Entebbe road and will later cover Kampala-Jinja road, Kampala-Masaka road, Kampala-Mityana road, Kampala-Hoima road and Kampala Bombo road,” she adds in a media statement.

Structures illegally built on the road reserve have since turned into a menace to road users.

Kagina’s move is seen as a correct step forward in returning sanity on national roads.

She explains that in UNRA’s drive to execute this mandate, they have, through inspection established that many individuals have encroached on the National Road Reserves, an act that contravenes the law.

In some instances the encroachment has been extended to the walkways, road shoulders and the road carriageway itself thereby posing danger to road users especially, pedestrians, she observes.

“This hinders the smooth flow of traffic creating traffic congestion and disorder as we now see on many roads radiating from the city centre,” says Kagina.

She advises all individuals who have structures or unauthorized activities of any form in the Road Reserves anywhere along the national roads to vacate before demolitions and forceful evictions commence.

“We request for maximum cooperation and compliance from the public to ensure a seamless exercise,” says Kagina.

Previous attempts to get rid of such structures have met stiff resistance from the owners.

Kagina anticipates that this exercise will reduce congestion on roads, reduce travel time and ensure safety of all road users.
