Nepal road improvement project starts

First published03/04/2019

Work is now underway on a major road improvement project in central Nepal. The Chinese contractor, China Construction Seventh Engineering Division (CSSED), is carrying out the upgrade of the East-West Highway route linking Narayagadh and Butwal. The 131km road improvement project is worth US$142.9 million and is expected to be ready by the end of 2022. The project will boost capacity and safety for drivers on the route by widening the road so that it has two lanes in either direction, rather than just one lane in either direction at present.
