Repair works on the popular but very dilapidated Douglas road commenced this week. Citizens have however expressed mixed reactions to the project as it is concentrated on some areas and not generalized. For now, the repairs has been concentrated around Mbaise Road, up to Ama JK, which are in worse shapes.
As a result of the ongoing constructions, road users have been restricted to using one side of the road and this caused major traffic on Tuesday. Traders who display their wares along the road have expressed worry over the effect the construction is having on their sales while other citizens are excited that the road is being worked after a very long period of being abandoned.
