 (KPL) The ongoing construction of the Laos-Myanmar Friendship Bridge is now connected after spending 20 months for the construction. It expected to open for public use in March 2015.

The supervisor of the Laos-Myanmar Friendship Bridge Construction Project, Mr Xaysongkham Manotham said, “Construction of the bridge began in February 2013 and is approximately 93% complete.  In December 2014, the bridge between Laos and Myanmar was connected.

The construction work expected to be completed ahead of schedule and the two governments hope to open it in March 2015,” he continued.

This project will strengthen the existing cooperation and solidarity between Lao and Myanmar people.

The bridge links National Road No 17 in Laos to National Road No 4 in Myanmar. Upon completion bilateral trade and transport will be facilitated which will bring mutual benefits to the two countries, its citizens, as well as the region.
