East-West Railway's 90% Work Completed in Sarlahi Section 

May 12: The East-West Electric Railway project in Sarlahi district has seen construction of 90 percent of construction completed in the area.

Engineer Bhuwaneshwor Yadav, the project's information officer, reported that 90% construction work was accomplished within six years of the project's contract.

The Sarlahi section spans 30 kilometers from Banke stream in the east to Bagmati River in the west, with the remaining track opening currently in progress.

Work to open track was stalled in some places after the Sagarmatha Forest Project and the Murtiya Forest Office did not clear trees reasoning that some farmers of Hariban municipality-5 refused to receive compensation.

The progress of this section is therefore zilch. Engineer Yadav mentioned that the construction is snail-paced in recent period. According to Project Office, Lalbandi, the construction company is still to get payment for completed work.
