Causeway on 63DR008a by DCC

District:

DCC Jumla has constructed a causeway on a small stream crossing of 63DR008a. It had been difficult for vehicles to pass through that section during the monsoon as continuous water flow with stones and debris had increased the depth of the water channel causing disturbance to traffic movement. DTA on request of vice chairperson of DCC planned to install HDPE pipe during the monsoon using RMGs to control the flow but due to width of the section and large debris flow the installation process was terminated. Smooth traffic movement had been observed after construction of the causeway.

Gabion Work by DCC

District:

The DCC have constructed a gabion wall on DRCN road (63DR004). The road was closed since two months due to a landslide during monsoon. DCC previously constructed gabion wall on the same spot was completely collapsed due to poor backfilling. After the monsoon the wall was reconstructed and road made open to traffic. Around 25 vehicular movements a day, including tractors and motorbikes,  have been recorded after maintenance of the road.

Landslide clearance by Guthichaur Rural Municipality

District:

Guthichaur rural municipality worked on clearing landslide of 63DR009b to keep road open during festivals. The road was blocked by monsoon rain which could not be cleared by RMGs. The Rural Municipality hired a machine and cleared landslides in various sections of this road. The road is now open for traffic and RMGs are continuing their maintenance work on this road.
