As a part of the Galchhi-Trishuli-Rasuwagadhi highway, the project aimed to widen the 16 km road from Syaphrubesi to Rasuwagadhi into two lanes at total cost of 4.5 billion Nepali Rupees. A feasibility study of this road project was undertaken in 20198 and implementation started in September 2019. Over 60% of work on road upgradation achieved by the end of 2020. The road upgradation was expected to serve Nepali traders but China, amid the outbreak of pandemic COVID-19, imposed undeclared blockade stopping trucks entering from Nepal.
