The ‘strategic road connectivity and trade improvement project’ will comprise widening of 95km of highway and bridges from Naubise (Kathmandu) to Nagdhunga via Mugling. The $450m project funded by world bank will significantly improve Nepal’s road connectivity with neighbouring nations, including India, enabling trade facilitation, and uplifting economic possibilities.
SMEC will share construction supervision as part of a JV with Pyunghwa Engineering Consultants Ltd. (Republic of Korea). The scope includes environmental and social management, health and safety, resettlement implementation support, relocation of utility services, quality management, and all aspects of contract management for the civil works contracts during construction including 5 years Maintenance Phase. The team will ensure the designs are verified and in accordance with international standards and are suitable for the site conditions encountered.
When completed, the project will enhance the performance and connectivity of the Asian Highway AH-42, which is an important national trade route. Our team of consultants will supervise the construction of widening and surface improvements along the alignment with 21 two-lane bridges set to dramatically reduce travel time and the cost of trading.
Alongside construction supervision, the scope of work involves verifying the project’s proposed designs; ensuring environmental, social, and civil works compliance; and performing the duties of the Engineer as per a FIDIC contracting structure.
