This is a two way long bridge over Gandak river. It connects two part of Bagaha Subdivision in West Champaran district. It also connect West Champaran district of Bihar with Kushinagar District of Uttar Pradesh. Padrauna and Bettiah, two district headquarters are connected in short distance. So many beautiful scenery appears while traveling through bridge. You can mesmerize to see the scenario.

But need careful driving. Need to go in their own lane. You may found broken approach road.

This bridge connects UP and Bihar into one another. Due to this bridge becoming, it has become very easy for the Champaran people to go to UP. This bridge is built on the river Gandak. The easiest and closest road to go to Gorakhpur is this. The view of Gandak river looks very beautiful when going from bridge. It is located in a dhanaha Thakraha assembly. The length of this bridge is about 2 kilometers. Due to the formation of the bridge, the people of this area have become very good means of transport. There is also a great system of lighting for night at bridge. Due to the border of UP Bihar, there is also a police check post on this bridge.
