The estimated cost of the project is Rs 111 billion as per the National Planning Commission.  'The initiatives and cooperation of all sides is necessary for fulfilling the responsibility within the deadline. Carry out the works on the project with utmost seriusness and demonstrating the capability as the Fast-track Project is a national commitment and the lifeline,' the Defence Minister said.

Minister for Physcal Infrastructure and Transport Raghuveer Mahaseth directed for the construction of the fast-track with due seriousness as this project was being closely watched not only by the Nepali people but also by the international community.

The Army has set up camps at Makhkhubensi, Kulekhani, Leddanda, Budune and Nijgadh. It has been carrying out expanding the track and earthwork at these places.  The fast-track would be 27 metres wide. Land within the range of 50 metres on both sides of the road has been acquired for the fast track.
