Nitin Gadkari says 70-part works on India-Myanmar-Thailand Trilateral Highway are complete

Around 70 percent of construction work on the ambitious India-Myanmar-Thailand trilateral highway has been completed, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said. India, Thailand and Myanmar are working on a roughly 1,400 km highway that will connect the country to Southeast Asia by land and strengthen trade, business, health, education and tourism ties between the three countries.

“Around 70 percent of the project work has been completed,” the Minister for Road Transport and Motorways replied to PTI when asked about the progress of the project.

The highway will connect Moreh in Manipur, India, to Mae Sot in Thailand via Myanmar.

The minister did not provide details on the timetable for the completion and commissioning of the trilateral highway.

The strategic highway project has been delayed. Previously, the government had aimed to have the highway operational by December 2019.
