Dharahara reconstruction gains momentum

Kathmandu / Mar. 10: 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, heritage expert of the National Reconstruction Authority (NRA), shared that almost 33 percent 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.
