Chitwan: The vehicular traffic on the Narayangadh-Muglin road section will be temporarily closed for four hours daily starting from December 23.
The closure is for hillside excavation to construct a bridge over the Tuin river, according to the authority.
Krishna Acharya, Information Officer of Nagadhunga-Muglin Road Project West Section (Narayangadh-Muglin), said that the road closure will be implemented from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm daily. This measure will be in effect for the first phase, spanning three weeks.
Out of the 19 bridges on the road, four were constructed four years ago. Progress has been made on the remaining 15 bridges, with some already completed and others in the final stages. Eight bridges are expected to become operational within two months, and four within a month. The Khare Bridge is anticipated to be operational within six months, leaving only one bridge to be completed.
The Narayangadh-Muglin road is a crucial transportation route to and from the federal capital, accommodating over 10,000 vehicles daily. The temporary closures are part of ongoing efforts to enhance infrastructure and ensure the safety and efficiency of the road network.
