Kathmandu, January 11
The Kathmandu Metropolitan City has accelerated its drive for city beautification by managing rampantly placed wires and cables alongside the streets.
According to KMC Spokesperson Ishwor Man Dangol, the city beautification drive is emphatically gaining momentum now though it was initiated in November 2017.
“The wires and cables installed by different agencies have eroded the beauty of the city so the concerned bodies have been urged not to install and extend the cables in a haphazard way,” Dangol says.
Works have already been initiated to remove the wires installed haphazardly and only well-placed ones will be kept, he adds.
The wires have been removed in and around Putalisadak, Pradarshani Marga, Lainchaur, Soaltee Mode and the places around the President’s Office in the first phase.
The management of the wires has become inevitable from public security and beatification perspectives, the local government states.
Likewise, the KMC also has paid attention to removing poles installed on the streets and cutting down branches of old trees alongside the road.
