GoN NEW ROAD PROGRAMME

RAP3 assisted DOLIDAR to develop a plan to connect VDC centres that are at present not connected by road to the DRCN. This programme will use GON funding leaving development partners to concentrate on maintenance and improvement of the DRCN. Data from DTMP and Districts envisaged that 584 VDC centres yet to be connected by road network. For this, a total of 7269km new road to be constructed to link all the VDC centres. In current fiscal year 2071/72 (2014/15), MoFALD/DoLIDAR has a provision of an additional budget of NPR 450 million for this purpose. Initially, DoLIDAR planned to provide budget with road name/s according to DTMP priority but later this has been differed and issued budget expenditure authority to respective DDCs with special instructions mentioning that the selection of road/s and budget allocation should be based on the DTMP priority/list to boost up the GON decentralisation policy. Accordingly the budget expenditure authority were issued to 51 DDCs (ranging from NPR 5 to 15 million).
