KAMPALA. There will be traffic diversion along Jinja road, as National Water and Sewerage Corporation(NWSC) embarks on building new sewer lines for the growing population of Kampala City.

A notice from NWSC indicates that the Corporation has contracted Sogea Satom to excavate and lay sewer lines along the Jinja road between Electoral Commission and Centenary Park, beginning Friday 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,” the notice indicates.

According to the notice, normal time of work will be through the night and it will take twelve days (12 days) to complete phase 1, 2 and 3 of the pipe installation while all reinstatements of the road pavement will be done within another nine 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 have been 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,” NWSC said.
