The specific objectives were to; examine the nature of the different socio-economic activities on the railway reserve land, identify the causes of encroachment on the Kampala Railway reserve land, explore the nature of the extent of encroachment on the railway reserve land, and identify mitigation measures to curb encroachment on the railway reserve land. The area of study was located in Kampala city in the central region of Uganda, the case study was the railway stretch from the railway bridge on Entebbe road to a railway crossing on Wankulukuku road. Theoretically, the research considered the theory of the Highest and Biggest Land Use in the assessment of the nature and extent of public encroachment on the railway reserve land in the area of study.
