Three farm roads proposed for 11th FYP

Kangpar gewog which recently got a farm road, proposed three more farm roads for their gewog.

According to Gewog Gup Chempa Dorji Kangpar village got their farm road in the month of December, last year.

However the other villages are still not accessible to road facilities and local people there usually use primitive modes of transportation. Therefore for the 11th Five Year Plan, roads for Kangpar to Threyphu, Bumshari to Pasaphu and Bidungphu to Lamigoenpa have been proposed.

Kangpar gewog has 481 households, and with these proposed roads more than 300 households will  be benefitted. The dzongkhag saw road facilities as a necessity for the gewog.
