Kathmandu, October 23
The Kathmandu Valley Development Authority has proposed constructing the Outer Ring Road by assigning the project to local consumers’ groups.
The proposal, which is awaiting the Cabinet’s nod, says a consumers’ group will be formed for each one-kilometre segment of the 72-kilometre Ring Road. Chiefs of concerned local governments will head such committees.
If the Cabinet begins procedures to acquire land on time, the project will be over in next two years, according to Dhruba Sapkota, Section Officer at the Ministry of Urban Development. Earlier, Sapkota had led the project.
The Road will pass through various areas on the outskirts of Kathmandu (35.08 km), Lalitpur (15.80 km) and Bhaktapur (21.05 km).
The Road will be eight-lane wide with cycle tracks, greenbelts and pavements on both the sides. The project is expected to ease traffic hassles in the Valley and facilitate the movement of people living in suburban areas.
