PUBLISHED — 21st, April 2021

Procurement Reference Number: KCCA/NCONS/20-21/00585

  1. The Kampala Capital City Authority ("KCCA") is a corporate body established by the Kampala Capital City (KCC) Act, 2010 to administer Kampala Capital City on behalf of the Government of Uganda. Through the Directorate of Engineering and Technical Services, KCCA has embarked on re-organizing the operations of the street parking in line with the Traffic and Road Safety Act, 1998 and the statutory instrument for street parking.

    As part of her mandate drawn from the parking regulations, KCCA in consultation with the Authority Council and Ministry of Works and Transport has currently garzetted 5682 spaces of which only 5682 are available for parking. Some have been suspended and shall be de-garzetted in future.

    The parking demand is high and an essential component of the Transportation System. Parking convenience is among the major factors that affect shoppers’ destination choices. Availability of parking space therefore influences the viability and competiveness of commercial areas. The placement of on-street parking near businesses improves accessibility and convenience to customers and has been used as a strategy for revitalization of central business districts and attraction of renewed consumer patronage to the downtown areas.

    The purpose of the Integrated On-street Parking Management Solution is therefore to provide an adequately designed system that will reduce traffic congestion by improving City Parking Management. The proposal shall involve designing, implementing, operating and transfer of a City Parking Management System for Kampala. This requires investment in demarcation of parking slots and smart parking technologies. The solution is intended to;
  • Help in reducing traffic congestion by encouraging mode shift from private vehicles
