DHADING, Sept 4: After leaving Dhadingbesi of Dhading at 5:30 in the morning, a passenger bus reached Kathmandu at 3 in the afternoon. Normally, it is a three hour distance but the miserable road has made travelling lengthier these days. The sloppy and bumpy road, multiple bends, overloaded and speeding vehicles, more often than not, lead to congestion. That in turn leaves passengers stranded for hours.
