Published on

The Melamchi water supply project (MWSP) is considered to be the most viable long-term alternative to ease the chronic water shortage situation within the Kathmandu valley . The project is designed to divert about 170 MLD of fresh water to Kathmandu valley from the Melamchi river in Sindhupalchowk district . Augmenting this supply by adding about the further 170 MLD each from the Yangri and Larke rivers which lie in the upstream proximately of Melamchi river .
Project is located in Kathmandu and Sindhupalchowk district in the central development region of Nepal.
The intake site is located in the upper part of the Melamchi river basin about 1 km North West of Dorin village and about 0.5 km south east of Ghawakang village at the elevation of about 1425 m.
The project area stretches from the intake at Melamchi River to the outlet at Sundarijal, about 14 km north east of Kathmandu city.
The MWSP was projected to cost US $464 million in 2000 A.D .Out of which financial separation as GON US $118 million and US $ 346 million for donor agencies.
CONCLUSION:

Nepal government (GON) and melamchi water supply development board(MWSDB) has scheduled its completion date sept-2016. Current contractor Italian company CRC has expected completion date before six month of sept-2016. Melanchi is not a day dream of Kathmandu, because monthly work progress report also proofs its reality that it is possible to complete this project in scheduled time. The date is not so far that people of Kathmandu collect water in there tap.It is too late to be pessimistic by complaining only to politicians and others except own self. There is equal role of everyone who exists in this nation to be alert and carefull about this weak condition of Nepal in civil engineering evolution. Almost half of the Nepalese civil engineers and youth manpower are completely dependent upon foreign, although we and our country have higher potentiality than our current demand in any civil engineering field. So it is compulsory to address these major problems in future projects to innovate in Nepal through civil engineering evolution.

  3. 3. ABSTRACT  Nepal is a landlocked country in between two giant civil developed countries named China & India.  As being in developing era , Nepal has been suffering from delay problem in major civil construction projects such as hydroelectric project , water supply project, irrigation project ,projects related to transportation and other too.
  4. 4.  Various news articles from online newspaper and documents of MWSDP were studied and analyzed to collect published data related to MWSDP in central region of Nepal.  .Major study is oriented with contracting process, tendering process, various construction problems, technical and socio- economical aspects these causes delay in completion.  Melamchi Khanepani development committee (MKDC) was established under developing act 2034 has scheduled its completion date as 2 September 2013.
  5. 5. • Key words: Delay in major civil engineering projects, water supply project, technical causes of delay.
  6. 6. 1. INTRODUCTION • In the moment the country is entering into the new era of democratic republic and feudal autocratic kingdom was abolished by the peoples movement, many horizons of new opportunities are emerging . • Investment in civil construction projects mainly water supply project is very important for the development of any country . • As water is not only essential for human being it is also necessary to all livestock and plants..

  9. 9. • Current financing plan and sources to respective project is.. 1.GON US $118 million 2.ADB US $120 million 3.WB US $80 million 4.JBIC US $52 million 5.NORAD US $28 million 6.SIDA US $25 million 7.JICA US $18 million, and others..
  10. 10. • China Railway 15 Bureau Group Co- orporation and CMIICJV has selected as contractor for project in 2008. • Currently Italian Co-operation Muritorie cementisti ( CMC ) is constructing tunneling part with completition schedule targeted as April 14,2016. SEE VIDEO CLIP1
  11. 11. 2.STUDY AREA OF MWSP • Located in Kathamandu and Sindhupalchowk district in Central Development Region of Nepal. • The intake site is located in the upper part of the Melamchi river basin about 1 km North West of Dorin village and about 0.5 km south east of Ghawakang village at the elevation of about 1425 m. • The project area stretches from the intake at Melamchi River to the outlet at Sundarijal, about 14 km north east of Kathmandu city.
  12. 12. 3.METHODS AND MATERIALS • The desk study is followed by the literature review. • Scientific literature such as journal , articles , books /documents including research/project reports. • Study of Progress reports of MWSDB. • study of online news. • study of old national newspapers of various dates.

  14. 14. 5.PROBLEMS: Major problems/ challenges causing delay of project can be categorized as A. Technical • Political situation aggrement with ADB was done in 2002 for 6 years, but it completed without any starting of work up to 2008. • Detail estimate conflict/controversial estimation. ;g @))* df af]nkq cfJxfg ubf{ k]z ePsf af]nkqx? dWo] ;a}eGbf sd c+s saf]n ug]{af]nkqbftf afx]s cGo af]nkqbftfx?sf] af]nkq tTsflng cj:Yffdf ;d]t nfut cg'dfg eGbfsl/a #* b]lv &# k|ltzt a9L /x]sf] lyof] . o;/L tTsflng cj:yfdf g} af]nkqbftfx?sf] cf};tsaf]n c+s Go'gtd saf]n c+seGbf nueu ?= Ps ca{ krf; s/f]8 al9 /x]sf] b]lvG5 . o;af6tTsflng cj:yfdf klg o; sfo{sf] k|rlnt ahf/ d"No nfut cg'dfg eGbf a9L /x]sf] cj:yfb]lvG5 . •
  15. 15. • Administrative problems • tendering process/ contracting process. With first contractor aggrement about Niches and pregrouting was not done accurately. That causes serious problem between both parties during construction. Termination of first contractor without completion of work (only 23%) in 25 sep2012. And rebidding with CMC in 21 June 3013. this causes hamper of nearly one and half year.
  16. 16. B.Geographic problems -landslides -weak interior geography in tunneling line. C.Social and environmental • obstruction of local people. Because of im proper social upliftment. SEE VIDEO CLIP • downstream ecological and hydrological hazards. • social upliftment programme extension in other VDC,s than 14 scheduled .
  17. 17. 6.OUR OPENION: • This is the transition phase of nepal to enter in well developed country from this situation. Here ,in Nepal we have unbelievable potentiality, e.g. Water resources, green forests, huge technical manpower, and others too. • Kathamandu valley will celebrate at the moment when water drop falls in tap of Kathmandu from MWSP. • There are various technical, social and environmental causes hampering all civil construction in Nepal
  18. 18. • It is also intresting that in nepal ,there is a major administrative and political amaturity towards construction projects. • Various plans (long/short) in nepal do not complete until deadline, because of lack of well equipped machines, well convinced manpower,. • There are conflict between locals and national agencies during planning/construction phase. • The concept of public private partnership (PPP) is one of the advance tool to manage such disputes.
  19. 19. • In this case, there we conclude major problem that hinder and delay the project is unaccurate contracting with chinese company. (Such as nothing mentained about variation in tunnelling process.) • We have been suffering in delay every where because of our culture is not efficient. • There should be legal ,ethical and moral evaluation of each parts in any project to promote contractors , that may enhance the progress of projects.
  20. 20. 7.CONCLUSION: • Nepal government (GON) and melamchi water supply development board(MWSDB) has scheduled its completion date sept-2016. • Current contractor Italian company CRC has expected completion date before six month of sept-2016. • Melanchi is not a day dream of Kathmandu, because monthly work progress report also proofs its reality that it is possible to complete this project in scheduled time.
  21. 21. • The date is not so far that people of Kathmandu collect water in the home. • It is too late to be pessimistic by complaining only to politicians and others except ownself. • There is equal role of everyone who exist in this nation to be alert and careful about this weak condition of Nepal in civil engineering evolution. • Almost half of the Nepalese civil engineers and youth manpower are completely dependent upon foreign, although we and our country have higher potentiality than our current demand in any civil engineering field.
