MYAGDI, March 3: The Maldhunga-Beni road section that connects Myagdi and Mustang with the national highway will be closed for four hours each day from Saturday for road upgradation.

Chief Administrative Officer of Jaljala Rural Municipality, Phanindra Acharya, said that a meeting of stakeholders held at District Administration Office, Parbat, on Friday decided to close the road from March 2 to March 7 for road upgradation work at Maldhunga.

The closure is scheduled from 11 AM to 3 PM daily. Delays by the contractor prevented timely completion of the road. Under pressure from various quarters, the contractor has now committed to adhering to a strict schedule.

The Apex-Khadka Krishna JV, responsible for the Beni-Jomsom-Korla road project, submitted a proposal to the district administration office for managing time, considering the risk of accidents during the construction work.

During the road closure, the contractor has promised to facilitate the operation of ambulances and vehicles carrying patients and essential vehicles for development construction, even if work is temporarily halted.
