Kampala, Uganda – Motorists traveling between Kampala and Masaka are advised to use alternative routes due to a partial road collapse at the Busega roundabout section. The incident has caused significant traffic congestion, and authorities are working to assess the extent of the damage and implement repairs.
According to the Community Liaison Officer for the Directorate of Traffic and Road Safety, SP Michael Kananura, traffic police are currently collaborating with UNRA engineers to evaluate the situation.
“The Directorate of Traffic and Road Safety informs the general public that the road between Busega roundabout and Kyengera has partially caved in, and the traffic police, along with UNRA Engineers, are assessing the damage,” stated SP Kananura.
In the meantime, motorists heading towards Masaka are advised to use alternative routes to avoid congestion. They can use Nakawuka Road at Natete Traffic lights or Mityana road until the Uganda National Roads Authority provides further guidance.
Officials urge motorists to exercise caution and follow traffic instructions while alternative routes are being utilized. More updates will be provided as the situation develops.
Please note: The Kampala-Masaka road is a major transportation artery connecting Uganda’s capital to the southwestern region. This partial closure is likely to cause significant disruptions to travel and commerce. Motorists are advised to plan their journeys accordingly and allow extra time for their commutes.
