KCCA in plans to build a Sh63 billion traffic control tower.

Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) has received a grant of Shs63 billion from the Japanese government to help tackle traffic congestion in the city.
According to a press release from KCCA, the project, named Management of Origin-Destination Related Adaptation for Traffic Optimization (MODERATO), will include the establishment of a traffic control centre at City Hall, signalisation of up to 27 junctions, and the removal of five roundabouts.
The roundabouts set for removal include Rwenzori Courts, Grand Imperial, Mulago, Mulago Mortuary, and Kubiri. The MODERATO project, which is part of the technical cooperation project named “The Project for Capacity Enhancement of KCCA in Management of Traffic Flow in Kampala City”, launched between KCCA and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) in 2015, will help ease traffic flow into, within, and out of the city’s central business district.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the traffic control centre took place in November last year. The centre, a three-storey building, will have the basement and ground floor used as parking and storage spaces for approximately 12 cars and eight motorcycles.
The traffic control centre will be situated on the first and second floors, where a large monitor shall be installed on the top floor.
The control room will also have access control technology using contactless cards, and there will be a waiting room for traffic police, located nearby in case of VIP support and disaster management.
The top floor will have a space that can accommodate up to 30 people, where people can tour the control room and be educated on traffic rules and manners through videos showing examples of traffic signals, traffic signs, and traffic accidents.
