    Cabinet approves construction of 69 bridges in Myanmar
    [​IMG]
    The Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, approved the construction of 69 bridges including approach roads on the Tamu-Kyigone-Kalewa (TKK) road section of the trilateral highway in Myanmar at a cost of Rs 371.58 crore.

    This will impart all weather usability to the TKK road section, which is also part of the route for the proposed Imphal-Mandalay bus service. It will improve connectivity between India and Myanmar and facilitate the movement of goods and traffic.

    During the visit of then Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh to Myanmar in May 2012, it was agreed, at the request of Government of Myanmar, to undertake construction of 71 bridges in the Tamu - Kyigone - Kalewa (TKK) road section of the Trilateral Highway.

    The Government of Myanmar has started work on constructing two bridges, on its own, as these bridges needed urgent attention.

    As a result, construction of the remaining 69 bridges will be undertaken under Government of India's assistance.
