Description The Project is part of the larger East-West Transport Corridor Project, which includes components in Thailand, Lao PDR, and Viet Nam. The objective of the larger project is to create a road transport corridor linking north-east Thailand through Lao PDR to Da Nang Port in Viet Nam. The scope of the proposed Bank-financed Project is assisting the Government of Lao with improving about 78 km of Road No. 9 between Maung Phin and the border with Viet Nam. The improvement will include reconstructing the existing largely-failed road pavement to a two lane bituminous surface treatment standard construction of new bridges and other drainage structures, and repair of existing structures, and ancillary works.
