THE MAHENDRA RAJMARG
The projected highway will extend from the Mechi to the Mahakali. It will cover the entire length of the country. It will pass through many important places at the foothills. This highway is a big project. It will take some years to be completed. It will be completed in stages. The construction of the highway has already been completed in different sectors. Friendly countries have come forward with help. They have constructed different parts of the highway. The British have constructed the part from Narayanghat to Butwal. The Russians have completed the sector from Simra to Janakpur. The Indians have completed the highway from Janakpur to the Mechi and also from Butwal to Nepalgunj.

The Mahendra Highway will be the life-line of the country. It will connect different parts of the country. People of different parts will be able to travel from one part to another. Different parts of the country will have contact with one another. People of different parts will be able to know one another and learn from one another. This will help the growth of national unity and co-operation.

The Mahendra Highway will help the growth of trade and industry. Goods will be easily transported from one part to another. Industries will develop at favorable places. The highway will help the industries by supplying raw materials and transporting finished goods to different parts of the country. The goods manufactured in one part will be easily and cheaply sent to all parts of the country.

The Mahendra Highway will help the construction of feeder roads. Roads extending north and south and leading to the highway will be built. Nowadays, there is a shortage of such roads. When north-south roads are built, the people from the backward northern regions will travel to the highway and other parts. The people of the northern regions with have contact with the people of other parts and will be able to develop themselves like the people of other parts.

The Mahendra Highway is one of the biggest projects in Nepal. When completed, it will link the different parts of the country and bring an era of prosperity to country. But the completion of the highway will require great labour and sacrifice on our part. The Mahendra Rajmarg may form a part of the projected Asian Highway
