Karnali Highway resumes, finally

KALIKOT, OCT 03 - Transportation has resumed along the Surkhet-Jumla stretch of Karnali Highway after a three-month obstruction. The road stretch was damaged at various places due to floods and landslides triggered by monsoon rains.

The highway came into operation Friday after Bheri-Karnali Truck and Tractor Entrepr-eneurs’ Association cleared a 74-kilometer stretch from Kitu of Dailekh to Nagma, the border between Kalikot and Jumla.

District-based entrepreneurs cleared the road with the help of an excavator as the Road Division Office did not despite their repeated requests.
