PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND RELEVANCE/ OBJECTIVES

The population of Kathmandu Valley is about 2.5 million, but an estimated population, including the floating population is around 5 million. Most roads in the valley are narrow and traffic congestion is very serious. Therefore, a mass rapid transport system is required in the Kathmandu valley. The road network in the valley is only 1500 km.

The construction of metro train in Kathmandu valley is expected to resolve the traffic congestion in the city and catalyze the capital’s economic growth. It will create significant number of employment opportunities and thereby improve the overall livelihood and prosperity.
