A technical team led by engineer Om Prakash from the Road Department, India has inspected Salghari area at the border between Nepal and India where construction of a motorable bridge over the Mahakali river has been proposed.

The area where the project is proposed lies at Salghari area near Maurabhir on the Nepal side, and SSB (Seema Suraksha Bal) camp on the India side.

As per the proposal, a 500 metres long bridge will be constructed at the estimated cost of Rs 4.5 billion funded by the Government of India, and additional Rs 200 million is estimated to carry out a survey, prepare a detailed project report and for compensation for the land acquired for the project, a according to the team.

The project is expected to relieve people who are now using around 100-year-old suspension bridge at Jhulaghat for mobility, and believed to benefit citizens of both Nepal and India.
