The Kampala Capital City Authority-KCCA 2017/2018 financial year budget in the works and roads infrastructure improvement sector will be reduced to Shillings 248 billion.
According to KCCA, the reduction follows a decline in external funding.
Putting in consideration the 2016/2017 financial year, KCCA received Shillings 280.8 billion under the Kampala Institutional and Infrastructure Development Project (KIIDP) phase two funded by the World Bank.
However, the Authority is set to receive only Shillings 31.79 billion in the 2017/18 financial budget from external financiers though the Central government is expected to contribute Shillings 64.9bn, Uganda Road Fund Shillings 20bn.
This money will include the completion of the ongoing construction and upgrade of dual carriage on Makerere Hill Rd and Bakuli Nakulabye-Kasubi roads. Part of the Kampala Institutional and Infrastructure Development Project money will also fund improving drainage systems such as Nalukolongo and Kinawataka primary channels and completion of the Kampala traffic control center building at city hall.
