KATHMANDU: The Development and Technology Committee under the House of Representatives has inspected Chabahil-Bouddha-Jorpati-Sanghu and Jorpati-Sundarijal roads.

The construction of Chabahil-Sanghu road stretching over 12-km has been left in the lurch due to disputes over compensation for acquiring lands for the project.

Contracted four years ago, the road is still waiting for expansion and blacktopping. The road turns muddy during monsoon and dust emanating from roads during the dry season, affecting commuters and local people the most.

Both the Chabahil-Sanghu and Jorpati-Sundarijal roads stretching around seven kilometers have extended the project completion deadline until the last week of the Nepali month of Jestha, 2077.

During the inspection, the committee president Kalyani Kumari Khadka pledged to seek a way out after discussing the matter with the concerned authorities.

On the occasion, Mayor of Shankharapur municipality Subarna Shrestha demanded management of telephone wires and electric poles and wire set up haphazardly and laying of water pipes in an integrated way.

Likewise, chairperson of the Sankhu-Jorpati road stakeholder group, Milan Khadka demanded that local people should be informed of every road construction details.

The inspection team comprised lawmakers of the committee and people’s representatives of federal, state and local levels of the constituency.
