With Technical facilitation of Rural Access Programme (RAP 3), R/Municipalities of Dadeldhura district are mobilizing RMGs in various DRCNs of the district which has made possible for the easier movement of the vehicle even in the monsoon season. There are in total 137 such maintenance workers grouped in 24 different groups in 14 core road networks of the district covering around 200 KM of the rural roads. These RMGs are clearing small landslides and obstacles in the roads, water management through clearing and constructing drains and water bars, filling ruts, rills and small gullies, creating small stone pitching in muddy sections and clearing the vegetation in the roadways so as to keep the road functioning at all times. Repairing small scale damage to the roads quickly helps to prevent such damage from becoming severe. Although, the contract of the previous year ended on mid of July, R/Municipalities have secured these groups for at least this monsoon period even if the budget is not available from the center/province. However, as it has been earmarked regular maintenance budget in province they are optimistic that these RMGs would run year-round.
