Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) would like to inform the general public and road users that we are experiencing a pavement failure at Kaharo along Ntungamo—Kabale road, 18Km to Kabale town.
The failure is as a result of the current torrential rains leading to landslides in the area.
“Our maintenance team in Kabale has closed off one lane to traffic and has commenced mobilization of materials to reinstate the failed embarkment and restore traffic flow,” UNRA said in a statement Saturday.
In the mean time, the following diversions can be used; trucks to Rwanda can use Ntungamo—Mirama hills road while trucks to DR. Congo can use Mbarara—Ishaka—Katunguru—Ishasha or Mbarara—Ishaka–Kikorongo—Mpondwe roads.
“We appreciate your patience and cooperation,” UNRA said.
