Jam at Naubise road leads to death of bus crash victim
Oct 12, 2017-A person, who was seriously injured in a bus accident in Dhading on Tuesday, died as he could not be taken to Kathmandu for treatment on time due to the traffic jam at Naubise area.
Hom Bahadur Ghale, 50, of Gangajamuna Rural Municipality-3, breathed his last in an ambulance that was taking him to the Capital.
Twenty-eight people, who were injured in the same accident, reached Kathmandu only on Wednesday morning. The vehicles carrying the injured had left Dhading at 3pm Tuesday. They were delayed due to the traffic congestion at the Naubise-Nagdhunga road.
People travelling through the road are facing hours long delay in their journey because of traffic jams, owing to poor road condition which has made it difficult for the vehicles to travel smoothly.
Some sections of the road can only accommodate single lane traffic, causing the jams. The poor road condition has also increased the frequency of motor accidents.
A distance that could be covered in just 30 minutes could sometimes take as long as five hours because of traffic congestion these days.
