Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) informs the general public and users of UNRA MV Kiyindi Ferry, that operates between Kiyindi and Buvuma, that effective 19 April 2020, the ferry operations were temporarily suspended to attend to emergency clearance of the water weed at Owen Falls dam.
The dam operations had been significantly affected by the floating islands.
This week, UNRA is also deploying MV Nakiwogo Ferry that operates between Entebbe and Buwaya, to support faster clearance of the water weed.
It is envisaged that the two ferries will be working concurrently until 8th May 2020 or otherwise advised.
“UNRA will advise the public in case of any changes to this notice. We apologize for the inconvenience caused,” the roads authority said.
