Gov’t To Repair Karuma-Olwiyo-Pakwach Road

Pakwac Bridge

The Uganda National Road Authority (UNRA) is set to conduct remedial repairs on the dilapidated Karuma-Olwiyo-Pakwach Road.

The road was upgraded to class II bitumen surface with drainage channels, culverts and shoulders in 2001 at a tune of 100 billion shillings.

Awany Tonny, the Nwoya county Member of Parliament says he had a discussion with UNRA over the poor state of the road.

Engineer Adwek Jimmy, the UNRA regional manager confirmed the development.

The road is the major business route between Acholi and the West Nile Sub Regions and DRC as well as the only potential road to the Murchison National Game Park.  

It has for more than three years been in a sorry state with several potholes, poor drainages and sharp edges which has not only affected smooth flows of traffic, businesses, responses to health and crime emergencies but also death traps. 

The users say that their constant plight to the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) and their local leaders over the years have yielded no fruits.  

Statistics from the Nwoya district Boda Boda association indicates that more than 13 riders have this year alone died from accidents along the road.
