Kathmandu, September 7
The government is preparing to assign a Chinese company to prepare a detailed project report of proposed Outer Ring Road in Kathmandu Valley. The company will be told to prepare the DPR in next three months.
Likewise, China Energy Engineering Corporation Limited is also likely to get the construction assignment with a deadline of five years.
It has been learned that the company has expressed its interest to prepare the DPR, do mapping and generate the resources for the project. Following the proposal, the government is hopeful that the 72 km road will be constructed within next few years.
The Ministry of Urban Development has endorsed the expression of interest and sent it to the Ministry of Finance for consideration. It is likely that the proposal will be tabled in the next Cabinet meeting for a decision.
Meanwhile, sources say the government will also block landlords from dividing their land into plots less than eight aana area and selling them if the proposed road passes through the land.
