Project Description

The project will build a new bypass road and bridge to the north of the existing border crossing, currently located in the congested centers of the two border cities, Mae Sot and Myawaddy. This new crossing will be dedicated to cross-border freight traffic and will avoid the congested urban areas. The bypass will link with a newly envisioned special trade zone on the Myanmar side. The overall project will consist of about 21.4 km of new four-lane divided highway (16.745 km in Thailand, 3.895 km in Myanmar), a 760-meter- long bridge across the Moei River at the border, and associated border-crossing facilities (BCF).

Progress (as of March 2021)
