The 4 km improvement section of MHLR was completed in June. The improvement section runs from near the Red Cross building in Gamgadhi to the Mugu Karnali River. Since then, monsoon rain has caused some damage. In the coming months, the relevant authorities will take over responsibility for the maintenance of the road, but it is important that maintenance is carried out regularly to increase the life of the road, especially during the monsoon season. For this reason, RAP3 MHLR has mobilised a Road Maintenance Group comprising 10 members including 5 women. A one-day orientation was organised for these members to inform them about the major objectives and importance of maintaining roads on regular basis and also their specific duties and procedures to be followed while working on the site.
