Deluge turns Bouddha road into a ‘paddy field’
Jun 19, 2018-Heavy rain has turned the road from Chuchchepati to Jorpati in the Kathmandu Valley into a muddy field as though it is being prepared for transplanting paddy seedling.
This road leads to Boudhnath Monastery. It is one of the popular World Heritage sites. Tens of thousands domestic and foreign tourists visit this site every month.
Vehicular traffic and daily commuters face difficulties because of the protracted repair and reconstruction work of the road.
The condition of the road between Chabahil and Chuchchepati was the same. Thanks to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Nepal on May 11, workers completed road repairs over night.
Local resident Parbati Tamang said, “Similarly, repair works of the road to Bouddha could also be done at the same pace.”
The authorities have demolished illegal structures on both sides of the road to expand.
