New Lao Mekong bridge to open in September
Reinhard Hohler, Chiang Mai (13.06.2013)
A new bridge spanning the Mekong River to link two provinces in Laos will open by September, the Vientiane Times reported on Wednesday.

The 620-metre span between Xayaboury and Luang Prabang provinces will also benefit Thailand, by facilitating land travellers from Loei and Nan provinces to the former royal capital, a main attraction in Laos.

Pheng Duangngue, director of the Public Works and Transport Department in Xayaboury province, told the Vientiane Times that the new bridge near Xayaboury provincial town would link the two riverbanks of the Mekong by the end of this month and will open by September.

The bridge will replace ferry services used to connect the two Lao provinces, the official added.

Construction on the bridge began in 2009, with loans from South Korea.
