About : 

  • It would never be an exaggeration to say that means of transport and communication are the very artery and lifeline of our progress and prosperity. How much greater the utility of this EastWest Highway is will no doubt be vindicated by the blessings it will shower upon the Nepalese not only of Today but also of Tomorrow. Hence, it is my invincible conviction that the efforts and sacrifices we make in this task will never be in vain.H. M. King Mahendra
