ARUA: The heavy rains that poured early this week have worsened the state of Arua Pajulu road via Awindiri.
The bridge which crosses River Enyau has been in a sorrowful state for a long time though vehicles were able to use the road.
However, following the recent heavy downpour, the bridge has become impassable for vehicles hence paralyzing service and social delivery in the areas of Pajulu in Ayivu west ward.
Speaking to ugreports.com Thursday evening, Anguzu Gerald a resident of BAT Pajulu said it has cost him extra fuel to go for work since he had to use Pajulu Euata road to connect to Arua town for his duties using his vehicle.
He further says the government should intervene immediately before the worst happens on the road.
Dramani Silus, a Bodaboda rider at Pajulu BAT stage says they have lost business since many of their customers prefer walking for fear of extra charges or fear of falling in the river.
‘’Leaders in Arua City should wake up and save the situation before it claims the lives of Innocent Ugandans,’’ he asked.
In August last year, Leaders in Arua city were on the spot for failure to utilize money meant for the construction of Awindiri Pajulu Road Bridge in Arua city.
The bridge has for several years remained unconstructed causing the leaders of Pajulu to receive bitter complaints from their electorates.
During the council sitting in August last year, the chairperson for finance, planning and administration of Arua city Aliru Khadija disclosed that the 1.3 billion shillings approved for the construction of this road was returned to the national treasury.
Meanwhile Dickson Adomati the then deputy resident city commissioner Arua city blamed the leaders for failing to utilize the money meant for development by the government.
