Bunyoro Motorists Urged to Obey Traffic Rules as Oil Roads Near Completion

Communities in the Albertine region are urged to follow traffic rules as Bunyoro’s critical oil road projects near completion. The construction, initiated in 2019 by the government and contracted to China Railway Seventh Group (CRSG) at a cost of Sh500 billion, includes the tarmacking of the 25-kilometer Hohwa-Nyairongo-Kyarushesha-Butole Road, the Kabaale-Kiziranfumbi Road (25kms), and the 47-kilometer Masindi-Biiso Road.

Ambrose Atwine, the public relations officer of CRSG, reveals that despite facing challenges, the project is 89.6% complete, with a handover to the government expected within five months. While the Hohwa-Nyairongo-Kyarushesha-Butole Road is already finished, significant work remains on the Masindi-Biiso Road and Kabaale-Kiziranfumbi roads, which are currently being finalized. The project’s timeline was extended due to COVID-19-related issues.

Julius Hakiiza, the Albertine region police spokesperson, emphasizes the importance of adhering to traffic rules as the roads near completion. He highlights a surge in accident cases, attributing them to reckless driving, speeding, and non-compliance with traffic regulations since road tarmacking began in the region.
