Arua’s Ozuu bridge finally repaired

Residents of Ofaaka sub-county in Arua district are in a celebratory mood after the repair of Ozuu bridge.

The bridge had weakened due to heavy rain and was unable to support heavy trucks. As a result, residents were using the longer route through Paidha to get to Nebbi town, according to Joe Wonder, a resident of Anyiribu sub-county.

A month ago, when the residents petitioned the local leaders, they promised to construct a stronger bridge that can withstand weather and heavy trucks.

“The timber is much stronger than what was previously used. We hope it lasts longer,” said Joe Wonder. Residents still maintain that a concrete bridge will permanently solve their problems.
