Raxaul-birgunj Integrated Check Post brings relief
Prior to the inauguration on April 7 of the Raxaulbirgunj Integrated Check Post (ICP), there used to be a 20-km-long queue of trucks on the highway. Now, there is a queue of trucks, though much smaller, on the 7-km approach road to the ICP, located on the outskirts of Raxaul. The change is also apparent in Raxaul. Till April, more than 800 trucks carrying export cargo would ply every day through this congested town. Today, the traffic is down by 400-500 trucks a day, as they take a bypass to reach the ICP.
