India-Myanmar-Thailand Highway starts operation

By NewsGram Staff-Writer

Cross border road transportation between India, Myanmar and Thailand started with the linking of Myawaddy-Thinggan Nyenaung-Kawkareik section of Asian highway.

Expressing their gratitude, Vice President of Myanmar U Nyan Tun and Deputy Prime Minister of Thailand Somkid Jatusripitak were present at the inaugural ceremony of the service. It was also termed as a cornerstone laying ceremony which reflects the bridge of friendship between Thailand and Myanmar.

With assistance from Thailand, work for the mega highway was started in 2012 which reduces the three hour travel time between Thinggan Nyenaung and Kawkareik to just 45 minutes.

The 25.6 km long section was awaited for being operational from so long. The Asian highway stretches from Moreh in India to Thailand’s Maesot via Myanmar’s Tamu, Mandalay and Myawaddy.

The route apart from contributing better connectivity in the region enhances trade between Thailand and Myanmar. The same section is also a part of the East-West economic corridor of the Greater Mekong Sub-region.

Notably, India and Mynmar are also having some crucial communication over introducing bus service between Mandalay and Imphal.
