Kathmandu: Nepal and India have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the construction of a motorable bridge over Mahakali River connecting Dharchula in India with Darchula in Nepal under Indian grant assistance.

The MoU was signed by the Indian Ambassador to Nepal Vinay Mohan Kwatra and Secretary at the Ministry of Physical Infrastructure and Transport Shri Rabindra Nath Shrestha in presence of the Minister for Physical Infrastructure and Transport Renu Kumari Yadav.

The project will enhance cross-border connectivity between the Sudurpaschim province of Nepal and the Uttarakhand state of India across Mahakali River where close people-to-people links exist between communities on both sides of the border, the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu said in a statement.

This is in line with the priority shared by both the governments to expand cross-border connectivity for streamlining commercial, cultural and people-to-people exchanges, reads the statement.
