The proposed route of the Trilateral Highway starts from the Indo-Myanmar border at Moreh in Manipur, India, and passes through Tamu, across the border in Myanmar, to reach Mae Sot in Thailand (Thai-Myanmar Border) after traversing through several towns and villages in Myanmar.
The highway was conceptualised at the Trilateral Ministerial Meeting on Transport Linkages in Yangon in April 2002 and was visualized as a Highway of Opportunity and Friendship that would facilitate not just the movement of goods and services, but also of people and ideas.
The Kalewa-Yagyi road section lies in the Sagaing region on the western side of Myanmar, measuring 120.740 km in length. The MEA has entrusted M/s Egis India Consulting Engineers Pvt. Ltd. to prepare a Feasibility Report for the upgradation of the road section, and to propose suitable designs, technical schedules, cost estimate of the project, and prepare Bid Documents. Subsequently, MEA intends to call a tender to select the agency for implementation of the construction.
