KARNALI: The State Government of Karnali has intensified road expansion and upgrading task.

As many as 36 road projects of Birendranagar are in implementation under the Physical Infrastructure Development Ministry’s Infrastructure Development Directorate.

According to the Engineer at the Directorate Surya Shahi, the road construction task is being carried out under the State Capital Urban Road, People Road Package.

Construction of the projects, which was obstructed due to coronavirus pandemic, is underway from June after the state government gave away ‘special passes’ to the projects.

Engineer Shahi stated that a target has been set to complete the construction of all under- construction projects at a cost of Rs 378 million within the current fiscal year.

He said that although the construction work was obstructed for around three months due to lockdown, works to gravel the roads have been continued.

The Karnali State government has set a target of blacktopping around 25 kilometers of road in Surkhet this fiscal year.
