A bridge near Phaksinda is almost completed and other bridges over small rivulets are in progress. 

Similarly, contract bidding of five more bridges in the corridor will be announced by this fiscal year if the design was approved, Chief Shrestha said.

According to Shrestha, a total of 22 bridges are required to build along the Koshi corridor, the national pride project of the North-South Corridor. So far, the construction of a single bridge was completed and is brought into operation.
