bhairawa-bhumahi The photo on the right is a new road. You can see the damage and the blockage on the newly constructed road.

It has been about 40 days a road connecting Bhairahawa with Parasi was constructed for Rs. 400 mil. and it has started failing. The 29 km road was constructed under the load of Asian Development Bank (ADB). ADB does its own quality control for which a representative was there.

    • Do constructors / engineers have ethics in Nepal ?
    • Will the culprit be punished?
