An Overview of Transportation

This and the next four papers describe the transportation situation in Uganda in June, 1979, immediately after the liberation war that ended eight years of military rule. Events that dominated the transport sector during those eight years are sketched, and damage caused by the 1979 fighting, including looting and destruction of property by retreating troops of the military regime and by civilians, is noted. The reconstruction of the transportation sector that might be undertaken over the next several years is discussed, with special attention being given to those projects that would contribute most significantly to this reconstruction.
