Fast Track Road Project

Backgrounds

  • Kathmandu-Terai/Madhesh Expressway is a mega highway project prioritized as an "infrastructure of national pride" having strategic significance. After high level comprehensive consultation and thought process, the Government of Nepal on 21st Baisakh 2074 BS decided to give the responsibility of construction management to Nepali Army.
  • The long awaited Expressway will be constructed along the pilot track opening which was initially developed by Nepali Army in 2069 BS. The NA is entrusted for this key responsibility due to its reputation and trust worthiness earned by timely constructing numerious road projects in past, amidst various hazardous conditions.
  • The Nepali Army considers this mega project as an exceptionally challenging opportunity since the expressway has to be designed and built on par with international standard. Therefore, NA has targeted to build the Expressway as it an "exemplary state of the art of civil construction” in South Asia. More importantly, this Expressway is believed not only become a boon but also genesis for a huge socio-econmic development in Nepal.
