The reconstruction of the Mukono-Kayunga-Njeru road is beginning to spur development in the three districts of Kayunga, Buikwe and Mukono.
According to local leaders and residents, the 94km tarmac road, whose rehabilitation commenced in 2015 and ended in 2017 by SBI international Holdings (U) Ltd, has registered an increased number of road users, who have created market for goods and services.
The road, which was last upgraded in the 1960s, had over the years fallen into a state of disrepair, which prompted motorists to dodge it.
Previously, motorists would spend two-and-a half hours travelling from Kampala to Kayunga, a distance of 65km. They now spend one hour.
