Arrangements will be made to ply all the vehicles coming and going from Koteshwar to Satdobato through the service lane 600 meters before and after Gwarko Chowk.

The Kathmandu Valley Traffic Police Office has said that passenger carriers, palace carriers and two-wheelers coming from Balkhu to Koteshwar via Satdobato will be allowed to ply on the service lane from Balkhu and small four-wheelers on the fast track.

Ashish Parallel Religare JV has got the work of constructing flyover at Gwarko in Lalitpur. Ashish Parallel Religare JV bagged the contract worth about Rs 170 million when 8 out of 9 participants competed financially in the contract awarded by the Quality Research and Development Center of the Roads Department. Ashish Parallel’s Religare JV won the contract at a price almost 38 per cent lower than the estimated cost.

The company is preparing this project on the Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) model. After completing the work of drawing and designing, the contractor himself is going to do the construction. The Ministry of Finance had acquired a resource of 330 million to build this flyover.

A 35-meter flyover is going to be built on four lanes of the Ring Road. Ramps will have to be made at a distance of 280 meters from Balakumari and 175 meters from Satdobato.

The target is to construct the flyover within two years of the award. The department believes that the flyover to be built parallel to the four lanes of the Ring Road will reduce the traffic jam at Gwarko Chowk. After the flyover is built, vehicles running Imadol-Patan will pass through the existing ring road under the flyover.
