Construction of bridges along the Narayangadh-Muglin road section has gained pace in a way to bring them into operation by mid-November.

Out of a total of 15 bridges in this section, 11 are in operation and four are under construction.

Engineer of the Western Section of Nagdhunga-Muglin Road Project (Narayangadh-Muglin), Krishna Acharya shared that other bridges have already come into operation except Khahare, Namche, Kalikhola and Tuin Khola bridges near Muglin Bazaar.

Works are underway to bring the two bridges into operation by mid-July, he informed. It will take much time since a high wall has to be raised to construct an access road for the bridge constructed over the Khahare rivulet.

Engineer Acharya said works on the Tuin Khola bridge will be completed by mid-November. There are altogether 19 bridges on the road section. The bridges have been constructed with the loan assistance of the World Bank.

The bridge construction has been delayed due to the need to cut the wall nearby Tuin rivulet and distribute compensation to the affected in Khahare.

Landslides used to cause recurring trouble along the section in the rainy season, but now improvement on the status of the roads and bridges have made it a bit easier.
