Project Description: Madan Bhandari Highway is an ongoing road project in Nepal, which is thought to be 1,200 kilometres (750 mi) long from east to west. It starts at Shantinagar in Jhapa District of Province No. 1 and runs through Inner Terai (Chure-bhawar) area. It ends at Rupal of Dadeldhura District of Sudurpashchim Pradesh. It is an alternative road to East-west Mahendra Highway (NH-1). The highway will be located 25 to 30 km to the north of Mahendra Highway and 25 to 30 km south of the Pushpalal Highway.
The 315-kilometre-long section of the highway from Dharan to Hetauda had already been awarded and construction works are ongoing. The road in this section runs through geologically unstable area at Hakpara, Sindhuli along the Marin River. Hence, DoR has planned to shift the road aligment towards Marine River bank. Therefore it is necessary to design and construct the river training works to protect the highway running through it. The river training works has been designed for 1897 m3/s flood.
