Electoral Commission Hands Over Former Headquarters To UNRA, Traffic Diverted

The Electoral Commission (EC) is this morning set to officially give its former offices on Jinja Road to the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA).

The move is aimed at paving way for the construction of the Kampala Flyover and the road upgrading project. The EC spokesperson, Mr. Paul Bukenya said the handover will be handled by Justice Simon Mugenyi Byabakama, the electoral body’s chairperson.

“UNRA is set to demolish the facilities on the land to pave way for the ongoing development of the Kampala Flyover Construction and road upgrading project,” Mr Bukenya said in a press conference yesterday evening.

The handover comes after a notice issued by UNRA and Shizimu-Konoike Joint Venture, a Chinese company, about implementing the project.

The notice also has information about the temporary traffic flow changes around Mukwano Road and New Kibuli Junction. The changes will start tomorrow and is expected to end on 12 June when construction works are finished.

The two agencies also said traffic from Kibuli to the city centre will use the new Kibuli Junction. This is toward Nsambya Junction and Clock Tower.

Traffic from Kibuli to Mukwano Road will turn right at Mukwano Road’s new section towards Mukwano factory.

“Motorists from Mukwano Road to and from Arena Mall will use the new slip road access. Traffic from Ggaba Road to Mukwano Road will use the overpass section of the new road along Villa Park area normally,” the notice partly read.

However, those traveling on Mukwano Road to the City Centre will not be affected by these changes.
