Thailand and Laos working on cross border service

Thailand and Laos working on cross border service - translated and summarized by Wisarut from Post Today, February 2, 2008
Governor of Nong Khai and SRT are making a discussion with Lao Railways Authority about the cross border railway services between Nong Khai and Tha Nalaeng (3.5 km). Now, SRT has sent the equipment for railway traffic as well as the level crossing equipment. They hope that cross border traffic will be open by May 1, 2008.
The cross border service will be the extension of Express 69 which reaches Nong Khai at about 9:00 AM and it will depart from Nong Khai at 9:10 AM and it will reach Tha Nalaeng at 10:10. It will depart as Express 70 from Tha Nalaeng back to Nong Khai at 11:10 AM and may wait for 7 hours to depart from Nong Khai to Bangkok. Immigration Process will be done within 20 minutes.
The draft of the cross border treaty will be done in the next two weeks using the cross border treaty between SRT and KTMB as a model for the cross border treaty between SRT and LRA (Lao Railways Authority).
