Kanti Lokpath Road Project


Most of the places of Nepal are still under remote area without road, electricity and other essential resources. Even the way to go Kathmandu(capital of Nepal) is not good. likely daily People are killed due to the rough road. Better road represents better transportation links to the neighboring Village, District, Zone and country. It is essential because it covers the rate of growth of economy. There are several way to go Kathmandu but from Birjung, and India border there are 3 main road  connection
1. Kanti Lokpath(KLP)- 92km
2. Tribhuvan Lokpath-135km
3. Pritivi Lokmarg via Mugling and Narayanghat-224km

Pritivi Lokmarg:

This road is significantly longer than the former two route but it is quicker and easier. We lead Kathmandu from Birjung through Hetuada and then Narayanghadh and then Muglin and finally we reach Kalanki, Kathmandu. But this road is also not good every time. In rainy season the land slide at Krishna Vir will disturb the road too much. and the hill with Trisuli killed too many people. This route is also prone to frequent closer due to slope failures, washouts and blockages by rain during the monsoon season with land slide and flood.
The opportunity at Kathmandu is higher while comparing others. People are come with their dream day by day so the population of Kathmandu valley is increasing day by day and for that reason it needs a reliable link to support the economic development. Which enhance gave rise to the urgent need to redevelop the Kantilokpath(KLP) to make reliable and alternative way to connect Kathmandu with Hetauda for facilitation of goods and services trade with India

Government of Nepal has established project many time, and during 2065/66 also the made seperate project office to improve existing alignment and to construct. like wise to connect Makawnapur to Lalitpur the made one steel truss bridge over Bagmati river at the border of Makawanpur and lalitpur districkimg_3980

By the reference of government official site www.dor.gov.np i have mention some information related to the Kantilokpath here below
