Chitwan, October 25

Road widening work is to resume on the Narayangadh-Muglin section and for this vehicular movement will be stopped during daytime.

Chief of Narayangadh-Muglin Road Project, Chandra Narayan Yadav said traffic would be stopped and road widening works started again after Chhath festival is over and there is less traffic.

He said discussions are on with the District Administration to halt vehicular traffic on this section of the road during the day from November 1.

According to him, although the construction company has requested that traffic be halted for eight hours daily, they are preparing to resume the road widening work by stopping vehicular movement for up to six hours a day.

“Now we will expedite the work by stopping traffic in the day time after holding discussions with the local administration,” Yadav said.

Before this, the work was being carried out by stopping traffic for eight hours daily prior to the start of monsoon. However, the vehicles were allowed with the start of the monsoon and the festivals.

It is said that about 800 metres of the roadside needs to be dug out at various points of the road section for the road widening work, and this demands that traffic be halted.

The contractor company has until February 20, 2018 to complete its work. But it is likely that the deadline will be extended by one more month as the company could not continue its work during the last monsoon. The company has been urged to complete the entire work by April.

It will be three years in April since the road widening work started. The deadline was two years and if extended it will be three years.

Only 57 per cent of the work has been completed so far, according to Project Chief Yadav.
