Panchthar, June 18
Construction of Koshi corridor that connects various districts of the Tarai, hills and mountains has picked pace.
Koshi Corridor Project Chief Abhiman Mulmi said 45 per cent work on the shortest route that connects Sunsari, Dhankuta, Terhathum, Panchthar and Taplejung districts to Province 1 headquarters had been completed.
The 148-km road links Panchthar’s Hilihang Rural Municipality with Sunsari’s Chatara. According to Mulmi, a 130-km track has already been opened, and work on the remaining section of the road is on. Completion of the road will ease people’s movement.
