September 29, 2017

CHITWAN:The Department of Road has decided to construct 18 new bridges in replacement of the existing ones along the Narayangadh-Muglin road section within two years.

According to the Department of Road’s Sanjaya Kumar Shrestha, most of the existing bridges are narrow and in a dilapidated condition.

Shrestha said that the contract for constructing four new bridges will be signed with a contractor within a month. The construction work would pick a pack once tenders are called for contractors to build the bridges, according to him.

Nayarangadh-Muglin Road Project’s Chief Engineer Shiva Khanal said that the six-metre wide existing bridges would be replaced with 11-metre wide new bridges.

The construction of the new bridges will cost an estimated Rs 1 billion, according to the Narayagadh-Mugling Road Project.
