Uganda - Road Sector Support Project II (Upgrading of Fort Portal - Lamia Road) - ESIA Summary
The Government of Uganda intends to upgrade the 93 km Fort Portal – Lamia Road under the Road Sector Support Project II that is funded by African Development Bank (ADB). The existing road generally cuts along the contours of the Ruwenzori mountain slopes. The road links Bundibugyo and parts of north eastern Congo with the rest of the Country and indeed the Indian Ocean coast. Its upgrading to bitumen standard is considered to be important, not only in terms of completing the national paved road circuit, but also for international transit traffic to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
