Chitwan, January 18
The duration of earth-cutting under the Narayangadh-Muglin road widening project has been extended by a month. It means the road will be barred for vehicles for four hours every day for one more month.
The earth-cutting for the road widening is being carried out by halting vehicular traffic from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. This schedule has been in force since December 20, 2022, for 30 days. Now, it has been decided to close the traffic from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm beginning tomorrow to continue with the earth-cutting work.
A meeting of stakeholders held at the District Administration Office decided to extend the time for earth-cutting for the next 30 days by halting vehicular movement.
Chief District Officer Asman Tamang said it seems very challenging to carry out the earth-cutting without disrupting the traffic.
