Construction of Syafrubesi-Rasuwagadhi highway to start within 3 months

Construction of the Syafrubesi-Rasuwagadhi highway is set to start within the next three months with 100 percent assistance from the government of China।
The Chinese side is preparing to start the construction of the highway, which links Nepal with Tibet, by October, news reports said। Estimated to cost 1.33 billion rupees, the road, once completed, will tremendously contribute to promoting trade between Nepal and China.

Nepal and China had signed an agreement for the road project on June 25, 2007 in Lhasa। The Syafrubesi-Rasuwagadhi highway will be the second road link between Nepal and Chinese autonomous region of Tibet.

The project also includes construction of eight bridges along the highway।

This is a good news for us. I hope such highways will open us towards China and lessen our dependence on India.
