Other strategies to reduce the cost of transportation of goods and services in the NRM Government’s strategy/manifesto include:

•The 1,724km Standard Gauge Railway (SGR), starting with the 273km Malaba-Kampala route;

•40-45km of a Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area Light Rail Train System (GKMA LRT)

•Construction of the Bukasa Inland Port on Lake Victoria;

•Ongoing tarmacking of 18 roads (1,375 km);

•Tarmacking of 17 roads (825.3km) that are under procurement to be started by 2022;
