Halesi, Khotang has finally been connected to national road network after Dudh Koshi bridge operation. Direct bus service is available at Chabahil, Kathmandu to Halesi for 8-9 hours. With the bridge now, the Halesi visitors has increased. The bridge was supposed to be constructed five years ago.

Kalika Construction and Hulas Company had earlier agreed to complete the bridge construction in 2009.The 150 meter RCC suspension bridge, first of its kind in Nepal, was constructed at the cost of 11 crore rupees.

Residents are pleased as they can now use the newly constructed bridge to reach the district headquarter and other districts. Jayaram Bridge is Khotang’s major entry point and connects Bahunidada of Tuwachung municipality and Manebhanjhyang rural municipality of Okhaldhunga. In lack of direct route, both the residents and the Halesi visitors had faced numerous challenges.

With the bridge now in place, the costs of daily products were likely to reduce. Prices of daily products are comparatively higher as the district relied on porters to transport goods.
