Ugandan National Roads Authority (UNRA) has kicked off tree planting pilot along Gayaza-Zirobwe Road. The campaign is taking a delightful shape, we confirm.
UNRA’s Allan Ssempebwa said the project will be launched soon.
“We are greening our roads! You may notice the trees are planted in the road reserve area, a mission also expected to protect our road reserves from encroachment,” Allan added.
UNRA team went species-site matching to determine the best tree species that could do well in the area, and also based on prevailing climatic conditions and local species in the area.
A couple and not just one specie were considered for the road reserve boundary and they include; Podocarpus spp, terminaria catapa, jacaranda Mimmosforia and Prunus Africana.
In related development, Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) has appealed to individuals with structures of any form in the road reserves to vacate before demolitions commence. The demolition will kick off soon to clear road reserves of all structures.
Meanwhile Wanseko(Buliisa district)-Panyimur (Nebbi)ferry has resumed service to the people in the area. The ferry was temporarily stopped after reports of Cholera outbreak at Panyimur landing site in Nebbi. “Flow is now on! Medical authorities cleared the restoration of services,” Uganda National Roads Authority revealed.
