The central government, which is headed by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi approved the important decision of construction of 69 bridges including roads on the Tamu-Kyigone-Kalewa (TKK) road sector of the trilateral highway in Myanmar at a cost of Rs. 371.58 crore.
This will communicate all weather usability to the TKK road section, which is also part of the route for the proposed Imphal-Mandalay bus service.
It will develop better connectivity between India and Myanmar and facilitate the movement of goods and traffic.
The Government of Myanmar has started working on these projects on its own, as these bridges needed urgent attention.
The construction of the remaining 69 bridges will be undertaken under the support Government of India.
