KATHMANDU, Dec 26: The Development and Technology Committee of the Federal Parliament has directed for the early construction of the Hanumante corridor project in Bhaktapur.
The committee issued this directive on Wednesday after conducting a field inspection of the under-construction Hanumante corridor along the Hanumante river.
On the occasion, Kalyani Khadka, President of the Committee, who led the team, directed completion of the project at the earliest. "The corridor is also expected to control Jadibuti-Koteshwor traffic jam," said Khadka. She also pledged the committee's 'special' role in resolving problems relating to the project raised by the affected locals.
Lawmaker Mahesh Basnet called for the completion of the project soon to reduce Koteshwor-Jadibuti traffic congestion. The second phase of the 1.99 billion project stretches from Balkumari to Jadibuti to Radhe-Radhe in Bhaktapur. A total of 16 kilometers of the road would be constructed on both sides of the Hanumante corridor.
