As the work on the Nagdhunga tunnel is progressing, water has started to seep inside, and the work has been done to stop the flow of water by installing white plastic. According to the technical team, the plastic will remain strong. A glorious road plan is being constructed. Inside Nepal’s largest tunnel road, water has started coming in. After the water started coming in, plastic has been applied to stop the flow of water.
He said that Nepali and Japanese have been working together for the construction of the road. However, the road infrastructure has to pay Rs 1.14 billion for the construction of the road. He said that additional Rs. 310 million has been provided for the assistance. He said that the budget required for the compensation was not released at once and the amount could not be paid to all at once. The engineer has informed that the road construction work has been started after receiving additional relief of Rs. 310 million.
In the past, there was a lot of controversy over compensation, but now people are only talking about the amount they should receive, how long they will receive, and when their house will be demolished. He says that the development is going well for the people and now they are getting along well from the locals to the center. He is of the opinion that there is a lot of work to be done now, but he is sure that it will be completed on time. In the beginning, people complained a lot, but now the complaints have decreased, he says. Ubale said that most of them have not been able to demolish their houses as they have understood the compensation. “Some people’s houses have not been demolished, so they are talking about when their house will be demolished,” he said.
He said that even if there was any obstruction in the development works, they would only bring complaints about the general issue of non-availability of water. He said that they would be resolved immediately. According to the engineer, with the help of local people, the work on the old DPR has moved forward. He says that he has been advancing 300 meters every month, even though he has not finished all at once, he has done a good job. He says finishing work will begin in late January.
Even if the development works are hampered in the beginning due to the inability to explain to the people, later on, all of them are on the path of development. He said that the road was being strengthened as it was a matter of pride and smallness of the Nepalis. While explaining to the people, he said that after getting compensation, they got support from everyone. Last month’s progress was 2.7, which is very good, he said, adding that this month’s goal is to go even further.
