Construction of the road network and bridges

Construction of a total of 42.45 km of roads is one of the major activities to be undertaken. 0. 78km of the planned road shall have two carriage ways of 8m, and 41.57km shall have two carriage ways of 4m.

Two weigh bridge stations shall also be constructed within the park. This road is to be upgraded to Asphalt Pavement and walkways for pedestrians will also be constructed along the road. Greening /planting of trees and flowers along the roadside and roundabouts will be undertaken. With the present state of the roads in the industrial area, the proposed project will be fundamental in not only alleviating the poor state of the roads and improved flow of traffic, but it will further improve the drainage system.

There are several developments along the existing roads including wall fences, temporary shelters, kiosks, paved yards, temporary shades, billboards, signposts, electric power and water supply mains that will be affected by the construction.


Construction of the SME Park

The feasibility study considered various models for the development of the facility and concluded that an integrated model for the workspaces project was preferred. This model will include a Common Facility Centre and a Market promotion centre as well as individual workspaces. The site includes allocation of approximately 8 acres of land for workspace, an office block, a common facility centre, market promotion, shared infrastructure and landscaped areas.


Installation of CCTV services, street lighting, fibre optic services

For all industries and services, the telecommunication network in the KIBP infrastructure needs to be an independent network that will act as a multi-service provider platform. It is anticipated that the KIBP telecommunication network will connect to the wider fibre optic cabling (for which the Ugandan Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is responsible) at a connection point on Jinja Road. This connection will then run to the KIBP telecommunications control centre (in sector South 8) before wider distribution through the KIBP.

The scheme proposes a system of minimum of two ducts per access route and space to increase this to four on each side of the roads in the congested areas to facilitate high speed internet and telephone access to KIBP. A dedicated fibre route be assessed for the KIBP and in particular in areas of commercial and SME industries. Within the KIBP, the proposed infrastructure to be installed on the access routes will include provision of the following:
• A dedicated optic fibre route
• Ducts for closed circuit television (CCTV)
• Public lighting
• Spare ducts for future additional services.


Construction of power supply network

The KIBP needs an external electricity supply in order to provide reliable energy to its businesses. There are sections of feeder lines that have been installed in private properties. Subject to agreement with the owners of these connections, it is intended that these plots are reconnected to the new network as the construction progresses. This will ensure safe and metered connections are provided for all developers. All the existing feeder lines have delineated within the KIBP boundary or through public property such as the old Jinja road to feed sector South B and sector South C. Sections traversing private properties have been avoided. The new power supply follows the same sequence described above. Its main features are the following:
• The lower section of the trunk feeder line in sector North has been moved to the main access road.
• The proposed main power distribution structures places the trunk feeder line originated from the substation in sector South B. Trunk feeder lines will feed the other sectors with KIBP.
• From this main trunk feeder line, several feeder rings and antennae have been delineated along the main roads of the four sectors to feed the 32/0.433kv in-door transformers. At the detailed design stage, designs of power reticulation, street lighting and the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) power control system shall be prepared.


From the preliminary water demand data obtained an estimate of the sewage flow and has been made based on engineering experience which suggest that Sewage output is 80-85% of the total water demand.

The Sewerage Scheme

The proposed sewerage scheme consists of a Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWPT) and the collection network consisting of underground sewers and a number of pumping stations.

The following general principles have informed the design of the sewerage scheme:

• The WWTP should be a single one to achieve cost/effective designs.
• The WWTP is located at the lowest point of the site so as to collect by gravity the sewage, thus minimising the number of pumping stations.
• It is located near the proposed discharge point.
• It is suggested that the existing smaller treatment plants that have been established by plot owners are gradually phased out in preference to connecting them to the new sewerage scheme.
• It is proposed that heavy or specific “hazardous” industries are required to pre-treat this effluent so that it can be discharged into the domestic sewerage.


Waste Management Strategy

The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) document dated 2004 which was approved by NEMA, is fairly comprehensive and addresses adequately most of the issues related to the KIBP development as envisaged at the time. Within its conclusions it notes that a solid waste management plan should be formulated.

A full survey of the waste generation in the existing park was carried at the detailed design stage.

Projections for future waste generation was combined with the results of the existing usage to finalise the waste management plan for the project. As part of the KIBP waste management plan, careful considerations were taken into account regarding the Waste Mitigation hierarchy and recommendations made to UIA on the prevention, minimise and recycling.

However, in considering the main residual waste stream i.e. sewage waste and general waste, there was a need to designate specific areas of the park as waste processing zones.

These zones are highlighted as follows:

Sewage Treatment Plant

There will be a Sewage Treatment Plant capable of treating up to 18,000m3 of sewage per day. A Sequence Batch Reactor type facility is considered the most efficient for this type of treatment. However, various options will be considered at the detailed design stage as more information regarding the likely nature of the wastes as well as the projected quantities becomes available.


The refuse will be deposited in the waste station by the trucks collecting trash bins. Bulk refuse will be deposited directly by the enterprises whenever the volume or the nature does not comply with the collector’s facilities. Once in the station, the refuse will be sorted out in a classification premise. A first line will convey organic refuse. The second line will convey inert non-hazardous waste. The third line will convey potentially hazardous waste.

The material collected through the first line (organic) will go to a provisory deposit on the plot. In this deposit it will undergo a secondary classification: material suitable to be used for composting will be separated, and spread over the composting facility in the station.

Material non suitable for this purpose collected through the second line (inert nonhazardous) will be deposited in the wait to be transferred to the controlled dump yard. The material collected through the third line (inert, hazardous) will be deposited in the wait to be transferred to the security landfill.

A full design for the facility will be developed and agreed with the UIA at the detailed design stage and agreed with UIA. It is envisaged that the plant will be operated by UIA or a private operator.

General Waste

A solid waste facility will also be located adjacent to the Sewage treatment facility in South B Estate. This will accept all solid wastes and sort the waste by classification i.e. solid waste; organic and inorganic; thereafter the waste will be transferred to the appropriate final destination i.e. a local landfill site or in the case of organic matter a central composting facility.

The following proposed facilities which will form part of the solid waste facility will be designed and operated in an environmentally sound manner:

• Central collection facility.
• Central compositing facility.
• Hazardous/Toxic waste facility.
• Solid Waste Containers.
• Circa New 16km pipeline collecting leachate from respective industries.

The station will be devoted to a segregation and transfer of waste for onward process, both organic and inorganic. The functioning of the plot is suggested as follows:
