Road Section at National Park to be Repaired
A section of the Madhi-Thori road from Rapti River to Rewa River in the Chitwan National Park is going to be repaired soon.
The District Development Committee (DDC) has allocated Rs. 500 thousand for the repair and maintenance of the road section. Around nine kilometers road section is to be repaired from this month, said LDO Tilak Prasad Poudel.
With incessant rainfall, the condition of the road section has worsened and it was beyond the capacity of the VDC side to repair the road, therefore the DDC had been annually allocating the budget. However, the maintenance work had not started due to the dispute related to the users committee, said Indra Prasad Kafle, secretary at Gardi VDC in the district. RSS
