ABSTRACT Hamu - Mukasa road, just like most other roads in Kampala city has a number of defects such as potholes, cracks, ravels aggregate polishing, and many more accompanied by lack of drainage which in turn facilitate the high traffic congestion and delays, especially at peak demand periods in addition to comfortability and unsafeness of the road users. Due to the strategic location and importance of the road as it provides access to institutions of learning such as Muteesa 1 Royal University, Buganda Royal Institute, and sir Apolo Kaggwa Primary school. This has been a basis for the redesign. This report is a presentation of the entire design processes and activities we as a team engaged in during our final year project for the award of a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering. The report contains five chapters with the first chapter all about the introduction and the project background. In this, the location of the project road was defined together with the problem statement and the specific objectives to be achieved in order to overcome the problems. The second chapter is of the literature review. This describes the various types and classification of roads in Uganda, and the different methodologies adopted during the design of this project plus recognizing works done by different researchers and writers towards highway design development. (Geometrical and structural). These methodologies mainly discussed in this chapter are the AASHTO 2001 and AASHTO 1993 for the geometrical and structural design respectively. The third chapter is all about the methodology i.e. the various methods used to meet the set specific objectives in chapter one. The fourth chapter is about the results from the methods in the third chapter together with their discussion and engineering judgments as far as pavement design is concerned and then the design of the road is done here. The final chapter is the fifth that includes success incurred during the entire process, challenges together with the recommendations made where applicable. This chapter is closed by various references from where our research was based and followed by the appendices. In the appendices, are various tables mainly of results from laboratory test that were being used in the calculation of engineering parameters for the design models being used.
