Description
The Uganda Road Fund was established by an Act to finance the routine and periodic maintenance of public roads, facilitate delivery of road maintenance services and other related matters. The Independent's Patrick Kagenda caught up with Engineer Michael M. Odongo, the URF chief executive.
There was a boom in road construction in sub- Sahara Africa after the Second World War up to when most of these countries got independence. The road building projects were build-and-leave. However the crisis came in maintenance and how to keep these roads. Most sub '"Saharan countries by 1990, could not sustainable maintain their road network. Sub- Saharan Africa has 2 million kms of roads requiring about $2 billion per year to maintain them. The bigger challenge was the economies of these countries could not sustain the roads. What was constructed five years ago was getting damaged in 10 years and was not being maintained.
