The Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) has released guidelines to be followed by residents affected by the planned Entebbe Express Highway project.
Compensation will start with those in a radius of 6km from Busega where the road begins. This follows the recent physical inspection and tour of this 51.4km road by the Government chief valuer and UNRA officials in preparation for the compensation exercise.
Dan Alinange, the UNRA's spokesperson said the compensation exercise will commence on September 10. First, the beneficiaries will be verified by capturing information to ensure that everyone who is compensated is a legitimate owner.
He said affected people should carry valid identification cards including recently taken passport photos, original land title for the land to be compensated, bank account details and letters of administration in case one inherited land.
The full list persons affected by the project will be published at the sub-county headquarters for public viewing. This will be followed by a sensitisation meeting.
The 51.5km road will be a dual carriageway. It will start from the Busega roundabout on Northern Bypass and progress southwards to Entebbe International Airport. It will include a 13km spur from Kajjansi to Munyonyo.
