Police released traffic guidelines that will be followed as Uganda hosts the Non-Aligned Movement and G77 + China Summits from January 15 – 23.
President Yoweri Museveni, along with various heads of state and government officials, will attend the NAM and G77 summits, with the primary venue being Commonwealth Speke Resort Munyonyo.
The designated summit route from Kampala-Entebbe Expressway to Speke Resort Munyonyo will be closely regulated. Starting from Entebbe International Airport through Kajjansi Interchange, the corridor will experience controlled traffic flow, with considerations for local and international flights accessing Kampala or the airport.
Traffic diversions are planned as follows:
- At Mpala, traffic will redirect to Entebbe Highway.
- At Kisubi, traffic will divert to Nakawuka Road for access to Kampala city.
- At the Kajjansi Flyover, vehicles will be redirected to use the Kajjansi Flyover to Lubowa – Zana.
Additional diversions and security checkpoints will be implemented at various points, including Serena–Kigo traffic lights, Mutungo–Kitiko traffic lights, and Busabala traffic lights along the Munyonyo Spur.
Motorists approaching Munyonyo from Gaba road will be diverted at UCB Road to access Buziga – Lukuli. At the Northern Bypass, diversions will be set up at the Busega Flyover and a slip road to restrict access to the Kampala-Entebbe Expressway.
Further traffic diversions will occur along the Northern Bypass at Sentema, Nansana, Bwaise, Kalerwe, Kyebando, and Kisaasi interchange, flyover, and slip roads. At the Bwaise Flyover, traffic will be rerouted to Sir Apollo Kagwa Road for city center access.
Motorcycles will not be permitted on the summit route (Entebbe Airport to Speke Resort Munyonyo). Specific boda boda stages along the summit routes and near hotels housing visiting heads of state will be relocated and absorbed into other stages during the summit period.
Travelers with flights at Entebbe International Airport are advised by Traffic Police to plan their journeys ahead to avoid inconveniences or delays.
