Trail Bridge Sub Sector Program (TBSSP), Kavrepalanchok District

Trail Bridge Sub Sector Program (TBSSP), Kavrepalanchok District

Project Summary:


Nepal has not been able to connect all the villages and settlements with the road network. Access Trails are a very important and reliable means of transportation for the residents of rural areas. Trail bridges are being constructed as a safe way to cross rivers and streams falling on the access trails. In the construction of trail bridges in Nepal, the support of the Nepalese government, local bodies, communities and various friendly countries and donor organizations is continuously being received. Since the programs are conducted differently from the different assistances of various friendly countries and donor organizations, the expected results have not been achieved. Therefore, realizing the need to maintain coordination and uniformity between the Government of Nepal, local bodies and donor organizations, it has been agreed between the Government of Nepal and the donor organizations to implement the policy and program management process of the Government of Nepal in the field of rural transport infrastructure and to conduct the program under the leadership of the Government of Nepal.

The trail bridge program has been fully operated as a publicized program and the plan, construction and operation of the trail bridge is done through local bodies and the benefited community. For the implementation of the trail bridge program, the trail bridge strategy 2062 and technical and social mobilization guidelines have been prepared and are being implemented. Since the necessary strategy, direction, standards, norms, etc. are ready in order to operate the trail bridge program as a regional program, the Government of Nepal has decided to operate the trail bridge program as a regional program from fiscal year 2066-67.
