Nawalparasi, July 3: The second time extended deadline for the completion of Narayangadh-Butwal road widening project is expiring on coming July 23.

The road expansion work was initiated after entering into an agreement in 2019. In the meantime, the deadline of the project has been extended for two times.

Information Officer at the project, engineer Shiva Khanal informed that 52 percent works have been so far completed in the Nawalparasi eastern section.

The eastern section of the project covers 65 kilometers from Gaindakot-based Narayani Bridge to Daunne. Information Officer Khanal shared the blacktopping of 44-km out of 130-km of both sides of the projected four-lane road has been completed.

“One can now travel through 27-km one-way blacktopped road along the section. The base is ready for blacktopping on the 6.6-km road”, he shared.

Project chief of the eastern section of the Road Expansion Project, Ashish Thapa Magar said the China State Construction Engineering Corporation, which was awarded the contract for the construction, has planned to blacktop in the ready area though it has not advanced any additional work during the current deadline. #nepal #rss
