SEOUL, Aug. 20 (Yonhap) -- South Korea said Monday that it has carried out a joint survey with North Korea of a key highway in the North in a move that could potentially pave the way for a cross-border road.

The joint team -- about 28 officials each from the two sides -- examined the conditions of roads, tunnels and bridges of the 161-kilometer highway running from the western border city of Kaesong to Pyongyang for an eight-day survery that ended earlier in the day, South Korea's Unification Ministry said.

South Korea has also been in talks with North Korea for a similar survey across the eastern border.

In April, the leaders of the two Koreas held a summit and agreed to work together in connecting and modernizing railways and roads across their western and eastern borders.
