Banke: Construction of the road network in and around Nepalgunj Sub-Metropolitan City is taking a good pace, which has contributed to the other development infrastructures.
Recently, 116 kilometres of road in the city is blacktopped and the development infrastructures in the rural areas have made significant progress.
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has doled out Rs 4 billion for the blacktop of roads in Nepalgunj under the integrated urban development project.
