Narayangadh-Muglin road

KATHMANDU, Jan 2: The Narayangadh-Muglin road will remain shut from 10 pm to 4 am every day in order to carry out road maintenance starting today.

Since the construction works of the Prithivi Highway, the only road — the only road connecting the capital with the East-West highway—has been sluggish, the road widening works are being carried out during the night to expedite the project. The project was supposed to be completed by April 2015.

“The road will be widened during the closed hours while black topping the roads will be done during the day,” according to engineer Shiva Khanal, information officer of the highway project.

“The roads could also be partially closed during the day as well,” he added.

Narayan Prasad Bhatta, Chief District Officer said that the road expansion works are being done during the nighttime in order to manage traffic during the day.

The bar will be effective until the next notice.
