Spanning nearly 1,400 kilometers, the highway is a testament to the collaboration between India, Myanmar, and Thailand. Once completed, it is poised to significantly boost trade, healthcare, education, and tourism sectors across Southeast Asia. This infrastructure is more than a road; it’s a bridge linking diverse cultures and economies.

The project has not only progressed in construction but also in financial terms. Toll revenue has seen a monumental increase from Rs 4,770 crore to Rs 41,342 crore. Looking ahead, the government aims to elevate this revenue to Rs 1.30 lakh crore by 2030. This financial growth reflects the project’s potential in fostering economic development in the region.

In an effort to enhance efficiency and user experience, the government is implementing measures to reduce toll time to a mere 30 seconds. This initiative is part of a broader strategy to streamline travel and logistics along this vital route, ensuring that the highway is not just a connector but a facilitator of swift, seamless movement.
