KATHMANDU — The Old Bus Park has been shifted to Khula Manch as a transitory city bus park for at least  three years from Wednesday as the Kathmandu Metropolitan City arrangements to start construction of Kathmandu Tower, a 12-story state-of-the-art business complex, in Old Bus Park.

According to Manoj Kumar Bhetwal, head of Swochanda Jaleshwor, existing old bus park will be moved to Khula Manch from Wednesday.

“It would take no less than three years to construct the Kathmandu Tower. In this way, we made an arrangement for a temporary bus park in Khula Manch,” he informed.

KMC has been awarded the contract to construct the complex to Swochanda Jaleshwor Construction Company.

Gyanendra Karki, KMC spokesperson, said the government awarded the contract to build Kathmandu Tower to Swochanda Jaleshwor and that the latter would begin construction work from Wedneesday itself.

“We chose Khula Manch due to unavailability of adequate open spaces in other accessible areas of Kathmandu. It is also close to the Old Bus Park,” Karki said.

Around 900 passenger buses arrived in and departed from the Old Bus Park every day.

After the completion of the tower, it will be used as a bus terminal and will also have a hospital, cinema hall, hotel and shops.
