Thanks to the completion of the two bridges, the residents in the Naga Self-Administered Zone and upper Sagaing Region can get easy accessible to border twon Moreh in India and Tamu in Sagaing Region.
About 330-mile long Thakkekyin-Phaungpyin-Homelin-Kamti Road and over 60-mile long PhaungPyin-Pinlebu Road have been upgraded to all-weather roads.
Upgrading of the 70-mile long Monywa-Yargyi-Kalewa Road is expected to be completed by October, 2020, and upon completion of the road, the road transportation between
