      New Asian highway linking India, Myanmar and Thailand put into service
      Sep 2, 2015

      Yangon: The Myawaddy-Thinggan Nyenaung-Kawkareik section of the Asian highway linking India, Myanmar and Thailand has been put into service, the media reported.

      Myanmar Vice President U Nyan Tun, Thai Deputy Prime Minister Somkid Jatusripitak and Chairman of the Kayin National Union General Saw Mutu Sae Po attended an inaugural ceremony of the service on Sunday, Xinhua reported.

      With the 25.6-km-long section becoming operational, travel time between Thinggan Nyenaung and Kawkareik will be reduced from three hours to 45 minutes.

      The construction of the Asian highway section started in 2012 with the assistance of Thailand.

      The Asian highway runs from Moreh in India to Thailand's Maesot via Myanmar's Tamu, Mandalay and Myawaddy.

      The section, also part of the East-West economic corridor of the Greater Mekong Subregion, will not only enhance trade between Myanmar and Thailand, but also contribute to better links among people in the region.

      A cornerstone laying ceremony was also held at Myawaddy on Sunday for the building of Myanmar-Thailand Friendship Bridge No.2 to link Thailand's Maesot with Myanmar's Myawaddy.

          Road Agreement With Myanmar, Thailand Soon: Gadkari
          02nd December 2015

          KOLKATA: Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari on Wednesday said the central government was working towards inking an agreement with Myanmar and Thailand for seamless flow of traffic across the region.

          Addressing participants in a car rally, held to promote the Bangladesh-Bhutan-India-Nepal (BBIN) agreement on uninterrupted cargo movement in the region, Gadkari said the central government is investing Rs.1 lakh crore in the northeastern region for road projects.

          "Going forward, we would want to have roads from northeast to Burma (Myanmar) and then Thailand. We are trying to settle in an agreement. The routes will help tourism and trade will flourish," he said at the concluding ceremony of the BBIN Friendship Motor Rally here.

          The rally covered about 4,500 km following the route of road networks laid out during the BBIN-Motor Vehicle Agreement signed between the four nations at Thimpu in Bhutan in June.

          Stressing the importance of road network, Gadkari said the central government was keen to develop the infrastructure in the northeast.
          "We have decided to invest Rs.1 lakh crore in northeast for road projects. We are also very happy to announce that road construction worth Rs.16,000 crore has already started. I hope the northeast will benefit a lot from this," he said.

          The minister said the Kolkata-Dhaka-Agartala bus service that was flagged off in June has strengthened tourism and the mutual ties.
          "We have also made an agreement with Bangladesh over using the Brahmaputra, which will also help in business and economy. We also hope in future that we will have water-passenger transport for travelling from India to Bangladesh," he said.

          "We will not only build bridges, but bridge hearts as well," added the minister.

              A MULTIMILLION dollar road upgrade in Kayin State was the first project to be awarded to a Chinese company since the change of government in Myanmar, the online edition of the China Daily reported on July 8.

              The state-run newspaper quoted China Road and Bridge Co Ltd chairman Mr Wen Gang as saying the company had tendered successfully to upgrade a 65-kilometre section of highway between Eindu and Kawkareik, on the main road link between Myanmar and Thailand.

              The road forms part of the Asian highway network, as well as the 1,450km East-West Economic Corridor linking Mawlamyine and the Vietnamese port of Da Nang that is receiving financial support from the Asian Development Bank.

              China Daily quoted a construction engineer as estimating the cost of building 65km of four-lane road in Myanmar at between US$600 million and $700 million.

              As well as being the first tender awarded to a Chinese company since the National League for Democracy took power at the end of March it was also the first project awarded to CRBC for an ADB-funded project in Myanmar for many years, China DailyGlobal New Light of Myanmar
