PANCHTHAR, March 27: The construction of the Ranke-Rabi-Bhedetar road linking four districts of eastern Nepal has barely made 25 percent progress in 50 months. 

The road project had to be completed some 14 months back. Still, the tasks related to track expansion, wall construction and other foundational works are continuing. 

According to the chief of the Federal Road Division Office, Ilam, Bidur Pokharel, only 18 percent physical progress was made on the road construction during the period of four years. 

He said the contractor company made accelerated progress on road construction in the last three months. 

Track expansion and wall construction were underway in the 28-km of Ranke-Rabi road section. Likewise, the task of the basement was going on for blacktopping in the Budhabare Bazaar-Bhedetar section, Division Chief Pokharel added. 

He shared that the contractor company has expressed the commitment to complete blacktopping in 50-km out of 101-km road within 2023.
