The government of Uganda in conjunction with National Water and Sewage Corporation (NWSC) is building new sewer lines for the growing population of Kampala City along Jinja road between Electoral commission and Centenary Park from 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 and laying of sewer lines being done by Sogea Satom will be done in two phases to allow proper traffic management and minimize traffic disruptions.

According to NWSC, normal time of work shall be through the night and it estimates that the process will take twelve days (12 days) to complete phase 1, 2 and 3 of the pipe installation.

All the reinstatements of the road pavement will be done within another nine working days (9 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 are 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.

In a statement, the management of NWSC says it apologies for any inconveniences caused and it remains committed to water for all for delighted customers by a delighted workforce.
