Total 452 tree on Mugu side and 827 on Humla side already chopped and prepared logs of different sizes as instructed by DFOs.
  • Phase 2 excavator hire agreements in place.  Average 8 excavators in operation during May.  New track opening works at Chankheli to Lebra sections.  Widening works at Falata, Bama Darke and Chankheli areas.  The excavator with rock breaker is halt due to servicing time.

Trimester Report November 2018 – February 2019

This is the first trimester report of the MHLR project since contract signing (29th October 2018) between DFID and IMC Worldwide Ltd for RAP3- Mugu Humla Link Road Project.  The report covers the period of 1st November 2018 to 28th February 2019.  The report summarises the information presented in the project’s monthly reports from the trimester, in particular the key achievements, results and issues experienced.  It also provides additional information and data on the project that was not relevant for inclusion in the monthly reports, or which it is too onerous to collect on a monthly basis.

Whilst the project contract end date is 31st May 2020 (with provision for a one-year extension), the project work plan continues through to 31st October 2020.  For time measurement purposes we are using the work plan end date, i.e. a project duration of 24 months, rather than the contract date with a project duration of only 19 months and during which it is not possible to complete the works.

The baseline plan for physical and financial results is taken from the forecast summary finalised on 14th January 2019.

Trimester Report March 2019 – June 2019

This is the second trimester report of the MHLR project since contract signing (29th October 2018) between DFID and IMC Worldwide Ltd for RAP3- Mugu Humla Link Road Project.  The report covers the period of 1st March 2019 to 30th June 2019.  The report summarises the information presented in the project’s monthly reports from the trimester, in particular the key achievements, results and issues experienced.  It also provides additional information and data on the project that was not relevant for inclusion in the monthly reports, or which it is too onerous to collect on a monthly basis.

The baseline plan for physical and financial results is taken from the forecasts presented in the previous Trimester Report (cover the period November ’18 to February ’19).

Climate Resilience Audit of Sanighat- Phukot-Syuna- Shipkhana District Road Kalikot

The Sanighat-Phukot-Syuna-Sipkhana District Road (SPSSDR, 17.650 Km), Kalikot lies in the higher Himalayan Zone of Province 6 of Nepal. The road has been constructed adopting labour based environmentally friendly and participatory (LEP) approach. The road is earthen surface and is designed and constructed following Nepal Rural Road Standard 1998 (1st revision in 2012). All constructed structures are flexible, and no permanent bridges and culverts are built. The main objectives of the resilience audit are to examine the adequacy of the current new-builtcivil engineering structures particularly water management structures, bio-engineering techniques, and propose opportunities for missing structures, assess the maintenance approachand provide plan of action including intervention measures to improve climate resilience of the road infrastructure as far as possible.

Provincial and Municipal Road Standards

Nepal has transitioned to a new system of Federal governance encompassing three levels of authority: Central (Federal), Provincial, and Local Government. Under this new organisation Nepal comprises 7 Provinces encompassing a total of 77 Districts. Within these districts are a total of 753 local units, consisting of 6 metropolitan cities (more than 300,000 people), 11 sub-metropolitan cities (more than 150,000 people), 276 municipalities (nagarpalikas) and 460 rural municipalities (gaunpalikas). Each local unit is further divided into wards (5-33 wards per local unit) with a total of 6,743 wards in Nepal.

Environmental and Climate Resilience Report

According to GoN regulations environmental assessments were required for RAP3 implementation.  Each new construction and improvement sub-project was screened as per Schedule - 1 and -2 of the Environmental Protection Rules (EPR, 1997, as amended from time to time). The results of environmental screening were categorized for i) IEE study, ii) EIA study, and iii) none of i) and ii) requirements. All RAP3 LRN new construction sub-projects were subjected to IEE study. DFID policy also refers to screening and compliance with recipient country legislation.
