According to Bijay Thapa, chief of the road project, traffic signs, check posts are being put on Halesi-Bijule road section. He further added that minimum work remains on the Bilule-Hulung road section, which will be completed at the earliest.

Following the completion of upgradation works, the consultant company MSV International and Soil Test JV has removed its office from Nunthala.

According to Surya Prasad Dhakal, engineer of MSV International, it has already awarded the work completion certificate to the construction company.
