Road and Transportation

Lalitpur Sub-Metropolitan City has a well-developed road network of various categories, width and pavement types catering to the transportation needs of its citizens. The city has good transportation linkages with other cities and settlement areas at the rural peripheries of the valley, especially at the south and south-east.

From 1985 to 1998 the total length of road under various road categories in the Lalitpur District increased from 290 to 383 kilometers. This drastic increase in road length within a period of three years was a result of increase in urban roads accompanying rapid urban expansion in virgin agricultural lands of the outlaying areas of LSMC. Urban road more than doubled (113 %), from 82 kilometers in 1995 to 175 kilometers in 1998.

It is estimated that the total road length within LSMC of various category depending upon the pavement type is around 67 kilometers. This includes 56.47 % black topped, graveled 9.61 percent and nearly 1 percent brick paved roads.

The road network character in the old city core area and the newly developed outlying area shows distinct character in their layout. The old part of the Lalitpur city has a well laid out network of road around 21 kilometers often in gridiron pattern, designed and built centuries back forming an integral part of the cityscape. Brick or stone paved roads and alleys of varying width integrated judiciously with the city form and design. Some roads within the city core are even built wide enough for the chariot of Rato Machhendranath to pass comfortably during its festival procession.

Though the nature and mode of transportation and traffic have changed with time from predominantly pedestrian to vehicular type, these roads still serve the purpose of the city dweller with equal effectiveness. The city core area is served by narrow roads of nearly 20 kilometers length. These roads have different types of pavements and the width varies from 1.5 to 7 meters.
Altogether 15 bridges exist in LSMC connecting the city with cities and sub-urban VDCs across the rivers that form its boundaries.

Water supply and Sanitation

LSMC has a long history of planned and well-designed water supply system as part of massive urban infrastructure of those times fulfilling the water need of its people dating back to Lichhavi period. And more remarkable is the fact that many of these systems are still functioning and contribute significantly to the day-to-day water demand of the city.

However, the present day water supply condition in LSMC and the whole of Kathmandu valley as such is unsatisfactory with acute shortage in quantity, and also the quality is far from satisfactory. The rapid and unplanned urbanization of Kathmandu Valley in the past few decades have taken its toll on urban infrastructures and more so in its water supply capacity, which is strained to its limit at present and LSMC is no exception.

Electricity

The whole of LSMC area has electricity, the vital lifeline of the modern urban cities. According to the latest data on consumers and consumption unit of electricity in LSMC, there are total 52,509 consumers, consuming 8,201,045 units of electricity per month. Therefore, total consumption unit per month per consumer of Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) is 156 units (KW). According to the census data electrical consumption per household is 234 units. 

Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA), the sole authority for electricity in Nepal, has its branch office at Lagankhel and distributes electricity through 11 KV, 33 KV, & 66 KV lines in LSMC.

Telecommunication

There is good presence of telecommunication facility in LSMC. Nepal Telecom with its office at Jawalakhel is responsible for the providing telecommunication service in the city including its distribution and maintenance (Figure 4.13). In today’s world of communication and information, the telecommunication facility in its various forms like telephone, mobile, fax and internet have made big impact in the socio-economic life of the people of Lalitpur.

According to Nepal Telecom, there are about 105 cabinets in the sub-metropolitan in total with the total of 48,760 lines.
