January 12: The construction of road from Kalikot to Humla has gained pace after almost a decade of dillydallying. Out of the total 196 kilometres of road of the Karnali Corridor project, 66 kilometers has already been completed.

The construction works started gaining momentum after the Nepalese Army took over the construction work. The 33-kilometre road section from Kalikot’s Lalighat to Ghataparichaur and another 33-kilometre road section from Bajura’s Ratadanda to Arthugechaur have been completed so far.

The Nepalese Army’s construction division informed that vehicles can be operated in the 66-kilometer road which lies in between Kalokot’s Khulalu to Humla’s Simikot.

“We are yet to blast the rocks in a four-kilometer stretch between Bhukkakhola to Tolibhir,” said the Nepalese Army’s in-charge Indiwar Gurung.

Of late, the Nepalese Army has expedited the construction work which had remained stalled in the past ten years. According to the army sources, they are planning to complete the construction works within the deadline given to them.

Humla is the only district which is yet to be connected to the national network of roads.
