Upper Trishuli Three ‘A’ completion tenure extended

KATHMANDU: The deadline to complete the Upper Trishuli Three ‘ A’ project has been extended by the next 34 months. The implementation of the 12.42 billion project got affected due to the Gorkha Earthquake and India’s unofficial border blockade.

A meeting of Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) Board of Directors held last Wednesday, deciding to extend the project’s completion term, urged the Chinese contractor to immediately resume the construction works. As per the new development, the contractor China Gezhouba Group of Companies Ltd, is expected to complete the 60-Megawatt project by mid-April of 2020.

Besides, the government has allocated additional Rs 610 to the project implementing body to reconstruct an approach road to the project damaged by the earthquake and construct walls on both sides of its dam site. The project’s approach route was damaged by the quake. The Energy Ministry was already informed about the extension of the project completion deadline by the NEA, according to Ministry Spokesperson Gokarna Raj Pantha.

Only 35 percent works of the project remains to be completed.
