We should all work together so that people feel that there is a government,” said Balendra Shah (Balen), head of the metropolis at the meeting.

During the meeting, Nepal Telecommunications Authority Chairman Purushottam Khanal said that Kathmandu’s infrastructure management needs to be improved by legal means. He said that proper management will only be possible if budget is allocated for the management of sewage, electricity, water and other cables along the highway.

The head of the Kathmandu Federal Road Surveillance and Supervision Office, Dr. Vijay Jaisi, said there were problems on the road, from power poles to drinking water and sewage pipes. “The electricity authority puts poles on our roads without asking. The problem of sewage and pipes is the same during the Rana period. There is a problem of working one’s way because of lack of coordination,’ he said.

Similarly, Kathmandu Valley Traffic Police Chief Umesh Raj Joshi said the problem of traffic jams has increased due to lack of coordination. ‘Someone digs the road, someone moves the pole, connects the cables, does sewage work, the road becomes completely chaotic. Which is a big problem in the transit system,’ he said.

Deputy Executive Director of the Nepal Electricity Authority and Head of the Distribution Department, Manoj Silwal, said it was inconvenient to do electrical work in some places due to the road. Expressing that they are coordinating with the highway department, he said that the problem is solution-oriented. Stating that the cable problem is huge, he questioned who would pay the rate for the electricity that is placed on the corporation’s tracks.

Nawaraj Pyakurel, Executive Director of the empowered Bagmati Civilization Integrated Development Committee, urged the Kathmandu metropolis to join the Bagmati sanitation campaign. “Empty vehicles are parked in river corridors, construction materials are thrown away even after the work is finished. For things like that, the corridor has not been made alive,’ he said, drawing the attention of the metropolis. Pyakurel told the committee that the state government could cooperate on the budget for mobile toilets.

Dhanpati Sapkota, the municipal police chief of the Kathmandu metropolitan city, said there was a problem when construction workers in the Kathmandu valley left the materials unattended in the road belt. ‘The beltway is for people who walk. However, there are construction materials on the sidewalks, cables are hanging down and pedestrians are walking on the road,’ Sapkota said. He also said that the telecommunications company must coordinate with the municipal police when changing the cables.

Speaking on the occasion, Kathmandu Metropolitan City Managing Director Loknath Poudyal requested the Department of Roads to complete the lower part of the road to Kakani (Pasang Lhamu Expressway) as soon as possible.
