Laos has deferred construction of a short-cut road from Vientiane to Luang Prabang for four months because of a shortage of asphalt in the country. 

The road from Kasy district in Vientiane province to the old royal capital now is expected to open in October, instead of its original schedule of June, Inpong Soukkhavong, the project director, told the Vientiane Times.

The delay was due to the shortage of asphalt needed to seal the surface of the road, he added.
