Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) has signed a memorandum of understanding with Makerere University to rehabilitate roads within the campus.

Speaking at the signing ceremony at the University today, Deputy vice chancellor finance and administration, Prof Barnabas Nawangwe said the project will be undertaken by KCCA engineers, Sterling Civil engineering limited at a tune of shs6 billion.

The said amount should have been paid to the university as compensation by KCCA as one of the areas affected by upgrade of Makerere hill road.

Nawangwe explains they decided to use the funding instead to renovate roads in the campus which are going to be worked on by  KCCA contracted engineers and Sterling civil engineering limited.

Among the key roads to be constructed include Pull road, Mary Stuart road, religious roads which are leading to religious centres among others.

The project will take four months and this will help the university to have cleaner and accessible roads.
