KATHMANDU, Oct 10: The construction of the Kaligandaki Corridor transmission line has been successfully completed. The 220-kV double circuit transmission line is expected to contribute to improving the national electricity grid system. 

The transmission line starts from the Dana substation in Annapurna rural municipality-3 in Myagdi and connects with the New Butwal Substation at Sunwal in Nawalparasi.

The government has signed a contract with an Indian company L&T in 2017 for the construction of the 88-kilometer Kushma-New Butwal Transmission line which spreads across Parbat, Baglung, Syangja, Palpa, Rupandehi and Nawalparasi.

The estimated cost of the Kaligandaki Corridor Project is approximately Rs 11 billion and the project implemented by the government and the Nepal Electricity Authority is supported by the South Asia Subregional Economic Cooperation (SASEC) under the Asian Development Bank.

NEA managing director Kulman Ghising expressed hope that the operation of the transmission line will contribute to promoting reliable supply of electricity and also address the voltage issues in Nawalparasi and Rupandehi areas.
