The Thai government has approved a 1.6 billion baht budget to help the Lao government extend the railway service from Tha Na Laeng to Vientiane. 

The rail route from Nong Khai to Tha Na Laeng station in Laos will be extended to Vientiane in the next two years.

The service will be the second phase of the Nong Khai-Tha Na Laeng service, which has linked Thailand and Laos since 2008, according to Acksiri Buranasiri, president of the Neighbouring Countries Economic Development Cooperation Agency (Neda), a public agency under the Ministry of Finance.
