President Museveni has ordered the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development to give the upgrading of roads in major towns and municipalities in Busoga and Bukedi sub regions/zones to Dott Services Limited.
In a letter addressed to the ministry, Museveni says that roads of up to 90 kilometres in Eastern Uganda are in a state of despair requiring urgent rehabilitation and would be sensible and realistic to give them to Dott Services since they are reconstructing Mbale-trinity road at the moment.
“I have been notified that a total of 90 KM critical roads are in a state of despair requiring urgent rehabilitation to remove traffic flow constraints exhibited at the moment and enhance the serviceability to the economy by facilitating free and fast movement of goods in the region. These critical road links are scattered around the municipalities and town councils of Bugiri, Luuka, Namutumba, Iganga, Kaliro, Bugweri, Kibuku, Budaka, Namayingo and Busia,” reads part of the letter.
“I am also aware that DOTT services are at the moment reconstructing Mbale-Trinity Road and Saza Road in Iganga Municipality. Accordingly, it would be pragmatic, quite expedient and technically proficient to engage DOTT services through a direct procurement in accordance with the law to undertake the proposed works as deemed appropriate with due expedition and without further delay,” the letter further reads.
Dott Services Limited is a Conspicuous Engineering and Contracting Establishment registered and incorporated in October 1994 and it is fascinatingly becoming a leading services provider in the construction industry in the East African region (Uganda, Tanzania and South Sudan).
