Narayangadh-Muglin road to remain open from today

BHARATPUR: The Narayangadh-Muglin road, which was being closed for four hours every day in the afternoon, will not be closed from today.

Information Officer of Naghdhunga-Muglin Road Project West Section (Narayangadh-Muglin) Engineer Krishna Prasad Acharya said that since the work on cutting off the cliff for a bridge is almost complete it has been decided not to close the road from today.

The road was closed every day for four hours for the construction of a bridge over the Tuin River, since December 22 last year.

Engineer Acharya said that a 60-meter-long bridge will be built over the Tuin river. Four of the 19 bridges on this section of the road were constructed four years ago. The remaining 15 bridges were contracted simultaneously, of which eight bridges have been completed and are under operation.

While six bridges are nearing completion, the construction of the bridge over the Tuin River has faced a problem due to the hard rocks in the adjoining hill. The construction of the bridge started three years ago. The cost of the bridge is estimated to be 1.28 billion rupees.

With the widening of the road, this road section has become 9 to 11 meters wide. It is the main road connecting the Tarai with the federal capital, which sees thousands of vehicles pass through it every day.
