The Uganda National Roads Authority Communications boss, Dan Alinange has announced plans to upgrade the Gulu-Moroto road that passes through Agago-Abim to Moroto, Olwiyo-Gulu-Kitgum road and Soroti Moroto roads which are not yet tarmacked.
Dan Alinange explained that for now UNRA is mobilizing equipments to quickly do some emergency work on the bad roads to allow movement of vehicles and people easy.
Agago woman MP Judith Franka Akello welcomed the idea but complained that she has been calling the UNRA engineer on daily basis about the poor road network and that there was no feedback.
The Nwoya woman MP said that she is very much disappointed with the bad conditions of Central Government roads in the country which she said that shows the highest level of inefficiency of UNRA.
Road users along the -Gulu-Kitgum road and Soroti Moroto roads which are not yet tarmacked said that they are obsessed by the poor state of road and that they will be glad if UNRA rehabilitates it.
The residents also claimed that over the week end, two Members of Parliament, from Agago and Nwoya districts, got struck on the same spot and struggled to push their vehicles.
