The MoUD had given a final nod on April 26 to begin construction of the ring road that was shelved for over 13 years due to various obstacles, including the problem in land pooling.

According to the MoUD, the first phase of construction will commence from the forthcoming fiscal along the 6.6km Chobhar-Satungal stretch and cover approximately 8,000 ropanis of land area belonging to over 14,000 landowners.

Of the total length of the ring road, Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur will have a coverage of 35.08 km, 15.80 km and 21.05 km respectively.

The MoUD has already prepared a Detailed Project Report with revision for the construction of the ring road. This ring road project has adopted land pooling process developed with a vision of interconnecting all three old cities of the Valley and newly-declared municipalities through a single road network.

The width of the proposed ring road will be 50 metres and the government will pool 500 meters (250 metres each) of land on either side of the road. All expenses for the construction of the ring road will be borne by the Government of Nepal. The eight-lane road will have cycle lanes, green belts and disabled-friendly footpath.
