Welcome to UNRA
The Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) was established by an Act of Parliament; The Uganda National Authority Act, No. 15 of 2006. UNRA became operational on 1st July 2008.The mandate of UNRA is to develop and maintain the national roads network, advise Government on general roads policy and contribute to addressing of transport concerns, among others.
UNRA is one of the products of Road Sector Reforms. In 1996, the Government of Uganda preparedthe 10-Year Road Sector Development Programme (RSDP). The Programme wasreviewed and updated in 2002 making it a 10 Year rolling Road Sector Development Programme Phase 2 (RSDP2). One of the objectives of the RSDP was establishing a robust administration for effective and efficient management of thenational roads network. To achieve this objective, Government committed itself to reform national roads management through the establishment of an autonomous performance-based Road Authority to handle road administration and execution function and restructuring the Ministry of Works and Transportation (MoWT) to focus on policy,setting standards, regulation, monitoringand evaluation functions.
