- All physical works in the 4 km improvement section were completed in June, including additional surfacing and drainage works. However, wages for this work were distributed in July.
- Fund released and payments made for excavators, Chainsaw Operators, RBGs and SRBGs.
- In total we have 16 SRBGs and 13 RBGs working along the road on both Mugu and Humla districts (now up to Saaththaple on Humla side).
- 3 of the SRBGs are chainsaw groups working alongside the excavators for tree felling, log cutting and storing. They have been given a thorough orientation on safe chainsaw operating practices, using training videos (sourced via YouTube), RAP3 H&S procedures and checklists. 1962 trees (out of 5870 stamped, 33.4%) have been felled so far.
