A 1400 Km Road Between Thailand And India Is Coming


The route will measure almost 1,400 kilometres in length and will mark the first time that India is directly linked by land to Southeast Asia in decades.

It’s hoped that the highway will boost trade and cultural exchanges, by allowing the easy transportation of goods between the three countries.

A recent development has been announced: the renovation of 73 bridges in Myanmar – originally built during World War II – that will allow vehicles to safely cross the highway.

The work is predicted to take around 18 months, claims Bhagwant Singh Bishnoi, Indian ambassador to Thailand, after which the highway could be opened to traffic from all three countries.

While the route connects just the Northeast of India to the Northwest of Thailand, road trip aficionados have been planning how to extend the trip from New Delhi all the way to Bangkok, using the Trilateral Highway to cross Myanmar.

Here’s what the Trilateral Highway looks like on a map.


The route will run as follows:

  1. Moreh (India)
  2. Tamu (Myanmar)
  3. Kalewa
  4. Yagyi
  5. Monywa
  6. Mandalay
  7. Meiktila
  8. Nay Pyi Taw
  9. Payagi
  10. Theinzayat
  11. Thaton
  12. Hpa’an
  13. Kawkareik
  14. Myawaddy
  15. Mae Sot (Thailand)
