CHITWAN: The ongoing expansion of the Narayangadh-Butwal road section along the East-West Highway has been obstructed following locals’ claim over the ownership of the trees that have been chopped down.
According to the road expansion project authorities, the local committees sought permission to take the timber that have been kept on the roadside.
The project, which had begun to cut down the trees following approval from the Nawalpur District Forest Office, has plans to fell down around 46,294 trees for the road expansion.
The government has given a deadline of August 2023 to the contractor to complete the project.
