LRT

The Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area (GKMA) covers an area of 1,000 Km2 and is the major business and industrial hub of Uganda, contributing over 70% of the country’s industrial production and over 60% of the country’s GDP. The GKMA will play a greater role in driving Uganda’s transformation to middle income status as envisaged in Vision 2040. In order to provide cheap, reliable, convenient, comfortable and safe public mass transport for the GKMA, the Government of Uganda is developing a Light Rail Mass Transit (LRT) system.

The proposed routes to be operational by 2020 will include:

  1. Kampala-Namanve via Nakawa, spear motors, Kyambogo, Banda, Kireka and Bweyogerere (12 km)
  2. Kampala-Kajjansi via Kibuye, Najjanankumbi and Zana, Lubowa, Seguku and Lweza (12 Km);
  3. Kampala-Kyengera via Katwe, Kibuye, Ndeeba, Nalukolongo and Natete (7 km)
  4. Kampala-Kawempe via Nakivubo, Kisekka, Wandegeya, Mulago, Kubbiri and Kalerwe (9 Km).

 

In addition to the above LRT routes, the existing Kampala Railway Station will be remodeled into a multi-modal transport hub to enhance inter-connectivity of the different transport modes in the city
