Municipal Transport Master Plan (MTMP) of Mahabu Rural Municipality (Dailekh) and Kumakh Rural Municipality (Salyan) have been formally approved by the Rural Municipality executive boards. At the request of these Rural Municipalities, UK Aid funded RAP3 MHLR has provided technical support for the preparation of 5-year MTMP. RAP3 MHLR's Province Support Team (PST) and technical personnel of Palikas conducted a joint survey of the Municipal Road Core Network (MRCN) using a GPS instrument, recording inventories of road length, width, proposed structures, road surface status, traffic volume, and other data. Following the collection of all relevant data, PSTs prepared MTMP maps using GIS software where the top ranked roads were determined using survey data and standard excel template. The implementation of MTMP will help in road construction and maintenance planning, programming and budgeting.
Vice Chairperson of Kumakh RM and Palika Chairman of Mahabu RM thanked RAP3 MHLR for providing technical support to verify data, prepare shape file, maps and preparation of the MTMP report.
