Ntungamo Town Council Approves New Architectural Designs for Central Market :: Uganda Radionetwork

The new market will replace a structure that was first built in 1982 when Ntungamo was still a town council under the administration of Mbarara Greater District.

The Ntungamo Town Council has approved plans for a new central market, which will be constructed as part of phase three of the Agricultural Markets and Trade Improvement Project.

The new market will replace a structure that was first built in 1982 when Ntungamo was still a town council under the administration of Mbarara Greater District. His drawings were presented to the Council by Eng. Emmanuel Mwebaze, infrastructure engineer from the Ministry of Local Government, as one of the steps taken to prepare the project.

Eng. Mwebaze said they are seeking approval of architectural designs from 18 city councils that have been listed to benefit from the third phase of the project, and then presenting them to the Ministry of Finance and the African Development Bank for funding. The other markets will be built in Kisoro, Bushenyi, Rukungiri, Kibale, Mpigi, Masindi and Koboko, among others.

He said they would build a two-story building due to lack of space. The current Central Market sits on 0.89 acres.

//Cue in; “the size is…

Cue out… an adequate size.”//

Michael Lugayizi, the Director of Infrastructure Cost Management Consultants (ICMC), the architect in charge of construction said that the design impressions of the market present two fronts; one side two-story and another designed as a three-story.

He said once funding is secured, construction will cost around 24 billion shillings. The market will accommodate 450 vendors when completed.

Cue out… these are the standards of 2020.”//

Boaz Kumwesiga, the representative of Park Ward, said that the architectural designs presented are good and the market will create a different brand for the municipality, especially on the Kabale-Mbarara highway.

Abias Nagaba, the president of Ntungamo Central Market, hailed the initiative saying that since its construction in 1982, the current market has never received a facelift and was already in poor condition.
