, embankment construction, get dangerously accelerated in the month of Asar (mid-June to mid-July) which is the last month of the Nepali fiscal year.
According to the Chief Engineer, all formation cutting/ first cutting works have been completed and around 85% of basecourse (layers belowblacktopping layer) and30% of blacktopping
workshave been completed.
'As a temporary solution before the complete blacktopping
of this road, we've got Rs35 million funds approved under the 'annual repair and maintenance' head for fiscal year 2018-19,' he said.
He said that former President Parvez Musharaf had announced for blacktopping
of Booni to Shandor road but it revealed that the last government embezzled the fund.
