DADELDHURA, Aug 17: The construction of Dakle Bus Park planned to be built five hours away from the district headquarter has not seen a tinge of progress in the last four years.
The construction which was planned to be carried out at Dakle, Amargadhi Municipality-8, has been in limbo due to financial constraints. Parking problems have seemingly increased with the incompletion of the Dakle bus park that was seen as an alternative bus park located at the district headquarters, Bagbazar.
Although the number of public vehicles has increased and the bus park at Bagbazar is facing parking problems, the construction of Dakle Bus Park has seen no progress till date.
The bus park is believed to have halted after facing shortage of financial expenses. An estimated six million rupees is believed to have been invested for the construction so far.
Chairperson of Ward 8 of Amargadhi Municipality, Nar Bahadur Shanki stated that the construction of the bus park spread in 38 ropanis of land was halted due to the lack of funds. Raju Kaini, a driver, stated the construction carried out in narrow streets has caused parking problems and posed risks of accidents in the area.
More than 300 vehicles travel back and forth through Bagbazar Bus Park on a daily basis.
