Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) has earmarked 39 roads for upgrading. The city authority says several roads and drainage channels were designed and land for their development identified and marked using pegs. These roads will be constructed as soon as KCCA secures funds from government and development partners.

As a result, the authority has warned residents against erecting structures in road reserves which have been pegged.
KCCA says they have notified owners of properties along roads to halt any constructions on the pegged road reserves.

"All affected property owners were briefed about planned road or drainage works, nobody should construct within pegged reserve areas, all affected properties shall be compensated in cash or in-kind before construction starts," the statement reads in part.

KCCA spokesperson Peter Kaujju told Uganda Radio Network that the institution is working with communities to guard pegs and other materials. He adds that the roads are upgraded for the benefit of the communities and as such, communities should always help KCCA to protect road reserves.

Mr Kaujju says the institution is also sensitizing communities to appreciate that road reserves are for public infrastructure programmes.
