Borikhamxay route favoured for Vientiane-Hanoi highway

Laos and Vietnam have approved plans to build a Vientiane-Hanoi highway passing through Laos’ central province of Borikhamxay and Vietnam’s central province of Nghe An, over a distance of about 700 kilometres. An official from Borikhamxay province, who did not wish to be named, told Vientiane Times on Monday the highway will run in parallel to the existing Road No 13 South before turning towards the Namphao-Cau Treo border between Laos and Vietnam in Borikhamxay province’s Khamkeuth district.
