Second Thai-Laos friendship bridge will house both railway and motorway- Transport Minister

Thailand is planning to construct a bridge to Laos throughout the Mekong River for both railway and motorway. Last month, the Thai cupboard approved the project to build a second Thailand-Laos friendship bridge, connecting Nong Khai in northeast Thailand and the Laos capital Vientiane, as part of the third section of the Thai-Chinese high-speed rail challenge.
The construction is estimated to value round four billion baht (US$1.2 billion) and Thailand’s transport minister Saksayam Chidchob says the price will most likely be cut up between the two international locations. He added that the design research of the bridge is predicted to price round a hundred and forty million baht (US$4.25 million) from the central finances and might be dealt with by Thailand’s Department of Highways.
Roadmap should be completed before the second phase of the high-speed practice challenge begins service in 2028, and the study for the new 50-metre bridge will take a 12 months, in accordance with the minister..
