There is light at Amagoro town in Teso North Sub County as they receive their first ever tarmac road since independence.
The project which stretches from Amagoro town to Adungosi 3.7km at a cost of Sh. 80.9 million will open up access to the different social facilities around the areas hence boosting economic development.
Residents have a reason to smile as laying of final stage of tarmac is currently ongoing on the Alelesi-Eden Rock Road and Amagoro Primary Access Road.
The County government has set up plans for similar works at Funyula town and to Bumala towns at cost of 115.8million ready to commence in the course of the week.
The three infrastructure projects are fully funded by the county government through the Infrastructure and Energy Department which saw the county hand-over to the contractor, Megalesa Ltd in February with an 8-month time frame to complete the project.
Speaking to the press, County Executive Member for Public works, Roads, Transport and Energy Okwara Ekirapa said they are not going to compromise work since it’s their responsibility to deliver quality services to the people.
“Our interest is to ensure that these roads are made to required standards and we are not going to relent on giving quality services to our people,” said Okwara
The roads once upgraded will increase the length of bitumen roads done by the County Government of Busia to 16.2 Kilometers.
