Nepal to begin construction of railways linking Kathmandu with India, China

Published on : Saturday, May 4, 2019

President Bidhya Devi Bhandari said that Nepal is planning to start construction of railways linking Kathmandu with India and China within two years. The completion of technical studies for the construction of railways linking both the neighbouring countries has been completed in collaboration with the two concerned nations as per the Nepal government.

 

 

 

 

She said: “The Detailed Project Reports of Birgunj-Kathmandu and Rasuwagadhi-Kathmandu railways, connecting Kathmandu to both India and China by railways, will be prepared and construction works will be started within two years”.

 

 

 

 

She informed the Parliament that the first trans-border railway between Nepal and India will be planned in the forthcoming fiscal year.

 

 

 

The Nepal government is also closely working to operate the Gautam Buddha Airport by 2019 and Pokhara International Airport by 2021.

 

 

 

 

The President said: “Encouraging results are seen from the implementation of the economic policies of my Government. Over six per cent growth in the last two years and seven per cent growth this year has laid a foundation for double-digit growth. Increment of 27 per cent in national savings has created a solid base for capital formation in the country.”

 

 

 

She added that the railway service will be made operational within the next fiscal year at Jayanagar- Bijalpura and from Bathnaha, India to Biratnagar. The construction of the railway at Bijalpura-Bardibas segment will be completed.
