THE CURRENT STATE OF  KARUMA PAKWACH HIGHWAY IS NOT USER FRIENDLY, VERY HOSTILE IN LINE WITH THE USERS VIEW








TODAY after visiting the construction of olwiyo - purongo highway we realized that the two companies are really trying there best to cover up all the dangers associated with the road i.e. potholes are so far covered 100 percent. leveling has also been met to 100 percent.


according to our analysis this highway mark one of the largest means of transporting raw materials from western Uganda to the central and eastern region of the country. this raw material include items like;


tobacco
coffee etc.


This raw materials are mainly transport in big trucks,


According the drivers, the current road condition have consistently led to delays in delivery therefore lowering there capabilities by almost 30%


HEALTH RISK ASSOCIATED WITH USING PURONGO -PAKWACH HIGHWAY


NATIVES around the away has so far suffer the frequent effect of dust to their health









most of the native suffer from flu and dry cough due to too much dust inhaled due to the road condition.


Not to forget the boda-boda rider who are also deeply affected by the dust along this highway,


some of the have resorted to using face mask , which is said to at least up to 20% of dust'


What you need to know???


The society of Gotapwoyo which is located in purongo town council painfully request NEC COMPANY which is of constructing this highway to adjust/speed up so as to stop this phenomenon other wise inchargee most of them worry that the dust condition may drastically reduce most of their life span.


They also complain about how NEC COMPANY has delayed their work compared to the other company which has skillfully almost completed their share of the construction


They also fear that the current road state highly expose them to accident therefore plea to NEC TO DOUBLE THEIR EFFORTS
