Khotang, Dec 31: The Diktel-Khotangbazaar green road has not come to use even after three years of its construction.
The 74-kilometre road constructed with the assistance of the UK government under Rural Access Programme has yet to come to public use. It took 11 years for RAP to complete the construction of the environment-friendly road at the cost of around Rs 363.2 million. Apparently, the road structure will require equal amount of expenses to bring it to the use.
Locals voiced their concern for the apathy of the sides concerned to carry out necessary maintenance of the road – which is the only way linking district headquarters with southern part.
With the operation of the road stretching from Alchhedhunga of Diktel to Khotangbazaar in the south, locals of more than three dozen VDCs of constituency no 2 will be directly benefitted.
