1.2 million kg dust collected from Kathmandu roads in one month


Kathmandu, December 28

Kathmandu Metropolitan City and Department of Roads say they have collected as much as 1.2 million kilogram dust from roads of Kathmandu Valley in past one month.

This amount of powdery dirt was collected from major roads of Kathmandu where the Melamchi Water Supply Project has completed pipeline works. The areas included in the clean-up campaign included New Road, Ratna Park, Tundikhel, Lainchaur, Singhadarbar, Baneshwor, Darbarmarga and Maharajgunj among others.

The two bodies had mobilised around 15 personnel with brooms and shovels to collect dust from Kathmandu.

KMC Environment Department’s Chief Hari Bahadur Kunwar says the amount is an indication of the level of pollution in Kathmandu.

“Now, we will give continuity to the campaign. Our personnel will be mobilised regularly to sweep roads,” Kunwar says.
