Officials at Melamchi Water Supply Project say that it still needs around three years to complete all pipeline works in the Kathmandu Valley.
In between the lines:
This means that Kathmandu will have rising dust levels for over three years.
- Around 90 kilometers of pipelines are yet to be installed in the current plan.
- Moreover, the project is also conducting a preliminary study to set up pipelines in another span of 500 kilometres whereas tenders from contractors are yet to be called for the work in another 900 kilometres.
Keeping in mind the impact on the city’s air levels, Lila Prasad Dhakal, spokesperson of the Project Implementation Directorate, says a micro-tunnelling technology will be used at major crossroads and other major sections so as to control spread of dust.
