Joint Monitoring visit using four-wheel vehicles
Prior to the handover of a 26km new road section of RAP3 MHLR to the Provincial government, a joint monitoring visit was carried out in the presence of Mugu Infrastructure Development Office Chief, Divisional Forest Officer, other stakeholders and members of the project field team. The monitoring team inspected the road from Rugha to Darke on 12th Dec. 2020. During the road inspection, the Monitoring team gave a satisfactory response for the quality of work performed by the RAP3 MHLR and concluded that the road is ready for the handover as it meets the Nepal Rural Roads standards.
After the inspection work, the Monitoring team also visited up to the end point of MHLR road i.e., Deuli Bazar, Humla (67+000) km via RAP3 MHLR and DFO vehicles. The first four-wheel vehicles have driven up to the end point of the Deuli section for the first time along the MHLR track which has made the local people of this region happy and hopeful for the future. Regarding the road work progress after Darke section and up to the end point, Deuli Bazar, providing structures is mainly remaining while track opening has been completed adhering to required standard. The COVID-19 pandemic has largely impeded the progress of road work which has now gained momentum. The monitoring team enthusiastically shared how within 2 years of short time period RAP3MHLR has actually achieved such a huge progress which is contrary to other government work practice. People of Chankheli rural municipality are very elated as the previously constructed road by RAP3 will now be operational as it will be integrated to existing road network of Nepal once Mugu Humla link road is fully completed.
