The Ugandan and South Sudanese governments have agreed to monitor the Nimule-Juba route, where truckers and travelers have lately been assaulted.
The accord came after mysterious militants murdered truck drivers and wounded bus passengers.
Police inspections would be conducted every 10 kilometers (6 miles) along the route, according to Uganda’s First Deputy Prime Minister Rebecca Kadaga.
Cross-border truckers from East African nations went on strike last week to protest insecurity.
