Road Maintenance Groups

These guidelines describe the process of creating and contracting Road Maintenance Groups (RMGs) for the maintenance of the District Road Core Network (DRCN) in Nepal. The  DRCN is  the  set of main rural roads providing access to all Village Development Committees (VDCs), and its maintenance is the responsibility of the District Development Committee (DDC). There are currently  approximately 22,000 km of DRCN roads, with a further 5,159krn planned to link VDCs that currently lack road access.
