Trilateral Highway project under feasibility study
Feb 10, 2014

The trilateral highway project to connect India with neighbouring Myanmar and Thailand is at the feasibility-report stage. A feasibility report is being prepared for the proposed highway.

The government of India will undertake upgradation of the Kalewa-Yagyi section of trilateral highway and construction of 71 bridges in the Tamu-Kalea section. The highway will connect Mae Sot in Thailand from Moreh in Manipur via Myanmar and will have approximately 3,200 km length.

The highway will help in smoother and faster movement of goods between these regions.

The idea of the highway -- from Moreh in Manipur to Mae Sot in Thailand via Myanmar -- was conceived at a trilateral ministerial meeting on transport linkages in Yangon in April 2002. 

It represents a significant step in establishing connectivity between India and South East Asian countries. The project is expected to be ready by 2016.
