First Thai–Lao Friendship Bridge

First Thai–Lao Friendship Bridge
It is the bridge over the Mekong, connecting Nong Khai province and the city of Nong Khai in Thailand with Vientiane in Laos.
Opened on 8. April 1994, it was the first bridge across the lower Mekong, and the second on the full course of the Mekong. The bridge was built by Australian companies as a demonstration of the capabilities of their ability to complete major infrastructural projects in southeast Asia. The cost was about US$30 million, funded by the Australian government as development aid for Laos.
