The Vientiane Capital-Sayabouly Road Gets Set for Completion


The final 124-km stretch of National Road 11 that runs along the Mekong, connecting Vientiane to Sayabouly and Thailand is set to begin at the end of this year, with the construction to be completed in three years.

The last section of Road 11 is part of a project launched in 2010, with financial support from the Neighbouring Countries Economic Development Cooperation Agency (NEDA) of Thailand.

The road from Nonsavanh-Kokkhaodor villages to Vang and Namsang villages via Xanakham district will link with a road in Sayabouly province going to northern Thailand with the aim of improving travel and transport in the region.

Construction of National Road No 11 is part of the cooperation framework between Laos and NEDA for 2017-2019.

So far, Laos has received aid worth more than 10 billion Thai baht from NEDA in terms of technical assistance and concessional loans for 18 development projects.
