The KCCA road maintenance teams have embarked on a city wide effort to cover the potholes. Despite announcing the overhaul of major roads, Kisaka says the repair works will go on to make the affected roads motorable.
This Wednesday morning, the Executive Director Dorothy Kisaka and KCCA engineers were at Salaama Road, Katwe Road, Yusuf Lule Road, inspecting the maintenance works. Engineers explained that some sections of the roads are affected by burst water pipes, and the National Water and Sewerage corporation has taken responsibility to repair in conjuction with KCCA.
Engineers also responded to allegations of soil filling of potholes, saying it looks like mere soil, but it’s not. The material used to fill potholes is murram, which has a stone base that is placed before asphalt finish. The road repairs are ongoing all over the city
