KATHMANDU — Construction of Kathmandu View Tower at the Old Bus Park in Kathmandu is at a snail’s pace which will likely to delay the project completion on given time, said the Kathmandu Metropolitan City.
Now building foundation for the project is on, which is in the first phase, said KMC’s Public-Private Partnership Unit Chief Mahesh Kafle.
“The project will not complete in time as the construction is slow,” Kafle said.
The project was signed on March 6, 2015 between the Jaleshwor Swochchhanda Bikoi Builders Pvt. Ltd. and the KMC with the completion target of five years. A total of workers are at work at present.
The initial plan was to build a 29- storey building, but the project was reduced to 12 floors following the earthquake of April, 2015. The project will occupy approximately 23 ropani of land.
The construction company will have to pay an annual rent fare of Rs 9.8 million in the course of the construction, and the rent fare will increase to Rs 23.5 million annually.
Royalty will be increased five percent every year. The contractor will hand over the project to the KMC after 30 years.Follow @gorkhapost
TIA to operate services for 21 hrs daily from upcoming mid-May
KATHMANDU — Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Rabindra Adhikari has said that the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), the only international airport in the country, would be operated for 21 hours daily.
In an interaction organized by the Nepal Tourism Infrastructure Development Council here in the Ministry on Tuesday, Minister Adhikari shared that the Ministry was preparing to operate the TIA for 21 hours daily from upcoming mid-May.
He added that the move was targeted to lessen air traffic pressure as the TIA is facing acute air traffic pressure as of late.
He added that though he was planning to operate 24 hours services in the TIA, it takes time to this effect. He also shared that night flights currently available from Kathmandu to Dangadhi will be extended to Bhadrapur of Jhapa in the near future.
Experts in tourism and culture sectors suggested Minister Adhikari to adopt effective plans and programmes for the development of these sectors.Follow @gorkhapost
