Axle Load Limit

The East African Community member states a few years ago agreed on the gross weight limit of 56 tonnes for commercial vehicles plying the regional road network. The drivers whose trucks were found exceeding the accepted load limit would be fined. The Kenya National Highway Authority went on and insisted on weighing each axle of the trucks, which marked the beginning of the axle load limit challenge. UMA wrote to the Minister for Trade, industry and cooperatives, Hon Amelia Kyambadde and the Prime Minister Hon Amama Mbabazi on issues concerning the same. A dialogue meeting took place between the President and his Kenyan counterpart to address matter which was finally solved.
