Indian Express reported that India has submitted the final detailed project report of the proposed 18.5 kilometer cross-border railway line between India’s Rupaidiya and Nepal’s Kohalpur. The railway track will start from Rupaidiya Railway Station and pass through Jayaspur, Indrapur, Guruwa Gaun, Hawaldalpur, Rajhena and end in Kohalpur in Nepal. A Detailed Project Report is a micro-planning tool that typically provides the project rational, summary, user specifications, engineering designs of main and support infrastructure, as well as technical and financial aspects including financial sustainability.

As per the DPR, the proposed railway track will run parallel and between the East-West Highway and the Postal Highway.

Kiran Karki, a Railway Department Engineer, was quoted as saying “Constructing the railway above the East-West Highway means clearing a huge swathe of national parks to make way for laying the railway track. So the project report has been devised in such a way that the sanctuaries are safe.”
