Farm road fails its purpose

Oct 29, 2014

Farmroad-TrongThe 9.3 kilometre farm road between Japhong and Subrang village under Trong Gewog in Zhemgang had failed to serve its purpose.

The road, which costs Nu.6 million MN, is hardly usable, say the locals. Huge boulders block the road most of the time. Landslide, erosion and rough surface of the road, add to the problem.

The construction of the road was completed in 2013.

The Trong Gewog has put up a proposal for additional fund of Nu. 500,000 for the maintenance, which is likely to come through, in November.

Trong’s Gewog Administrative Officer, Karma Tenzin, says the Subrang terrain is fragile and a little rainfall triggers landslides.

The farm road is supposed to benefit 190 people living in Subrang village. The construction was funded through Small Development Project.

    It is not only failed under Zhemgang dzongkhag. ALmost all farm roads are unusable. They have been built for coverage and statistical purposes. However, PDP should stop blaming, but start maintaining. Least these resources go into waste.
