We will try to finish fast-track on time: NA

Kathmandu, September 20

The Nepali Army said they were working to finish construction of the 76.2-kilometre Kathmandu-Tarai Fast Track within the set time-frame. The government has provided four years time for the NA to complete the project.

“The government has entrusted the responsibility of the project to us. We have made a plan to complete the project within the given time-frame,” said the head of engineering department of the NA and major general Yogendra Khand at the press conference held today at Army Headquarters, adding, if we get support from all sectors, we can deliver the project on time.

Around 18 months has already passed. “Till date, we have completed around 25 per cent of work on the project.” Khand said. He added that around 1,200 army personnel were working from 10 different camps.

The NA has decided to award the contract to conduct a detailed project report to South Korean joint venture company Yooshin and Pyunghwa.
