Dharahara Reconstruction Gains Momentum
Kathmandu – The reconstruction of historical Dharahara that was devastated by the 2015 Gorkha earthquake is gaining momentum in a way to complete it by mid-September 2020.
Rajuman Maqnandhar, the heritage expert of the National Reconstruction Authority (NRA), shared that almost 33 percent of works have been so far completed with the spending of Rs 850 million.
The contract for the reconstruction was awarded to Raman Construction with a deadline to accomplish the task in two years. A budget of Rs 3.48 billion is estimated to be spent for Dharahara reconstruction.
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli had laid the foundation stone of its reconstruction last year.
Daily 150 workers are being mobilized in the reconstruction of the tower.
The breadth of the new Dharahara is bigger than that of the devastated one. It would also have two lifts and a traditional ladder. The Dharahara is being reconstructed in 42 ropanis of land.
