KATHMANDU: The government has geared for doing the groundwork to construct the outer ring road, an ambitious project which is expected to help ease the chaotic traffic of the Capital city.
An agreement has already been reached to carry out field and social surveys, land acquisition and consultation services so that the engineering design for the project could be developed.
A final report on Environmental Social Impact Assessment has already been forwarded to the Ministry of Environment, according to the Ministry of Urban Development. The MoUD said a detailed project report for the 10-km area covering Satungal to Paiyatar was also being prepared.
The outer ring road plan was conceived more than five years ago but it has failed to take off.
