Uganda Police Pleads with UNRA to Exempt Patrol Vehicles from Expressway Toll
Chief Political Commissar of the Uganda Police AIGP Asan Kasingye has called upon Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) to consider revising and exempting the Police Patrol Vehicles from Expressway Toll fees while using Kampala Entebbe Express High way.
According to UNRA, The Entebbe Express Highway started collecting toll fees on 8th January 2022. for all motorists using this route.
Kasingye however, says the Police has allocated patrol vehicles to monitor security on the road, and that these need to be expected from the toll.
“I applaud (UNRA) for Toll fees. There is a designated police patrol vehicle to check on Criminality on that road and prevent crimes. It takes average of 10 trips from Busega-Mpala and back. This makes it 20 Toll passes at 5k, totalling to 100k per day3million per month. What do we do?” Posted Kasingye
How ever the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) has responded that “All institutions of Government are now required to plan for and acquire Toll cards for ease of conduct of their operations while on the Expressway.
We encourage all players to join us in denouncing overhwelming calls and requests for Exemptions!”
