Railway development body formed in Nepal
Last Updated(Beijing Time):2005-11-22 13:39
A committee comprising of chairmen and vice-chairmen of 19 districts in Nepal's mid-western region has been formed to develop an electric railway track linking Nepal with China, an official said here Tuesday.

A technical team led by Coordinator and Chairman of Makwanpur district Govinda Prasad Khatiwada is set to meet Vice Chairman Kirtinidhi Bista and discuss about the possibility of the project.

Technical advisor and local development officer of Makwanpur district Purna Chandra Bhattarai told reporters that a detail project report and detail design authority should be prepared and included in the national policy and program.

He said that the rail track linking India and China will be a backbone of national economy and the estimated cost will be around1.6 billion Nepali rupees (22.85 million US dollars).

Nepali King Gyanendra has directed the local government officials to work to implement a concept of constructing an electric railway network linking Birgunj bordering India and Tatopani bordering China to Kathmandu, during his visit to the mid-western region in September.

"We have developed a concept of linking Birgunj-Kathmandu-Tatopani through electric railway network and this must be implemented in coordination with the neighboring countries," the king told government officials during his visit.
