Nepal's Road Scheme Gets More World Bank Aid

The World Bank is providing another USD75 million to improve road networks in Nepal’s western region.

The supplementary funding will help upgrade dry season roads to all-weather standard in Darchula, Bajhang, Kalikot, Jumla Jajarkot and Rukum. It will also be used to rehabilitate flood-ravaged roads in Dailekh, Darchula, Baitadi, Bajhang and Kalikot.

The Road Sector Development Project in Nepal initially received a grant of USD42.6 million from the World Bank.
