The construction of highway bus terminal in Tamu Town, Sagaing Region, which is a gateway to Myanmar-India cross-border trading, is 90 per cent finished. The operation will start in the coming open season, according to Tamu Private Motor Vehicles Management Committee. “There is no highway bus terminal in Tamu. It is self-provided building in cooperation with the relevant organizations and the local people. The construction is 90 per cent completed. It can start operating once India puts the pandemic under control,” said U Myo Min Tun, secretary of the Tamu Township Development Committee. The highway bus terminal is constructed on 15.02 acres of lands near the roadside of Tamu-Nanphalon market. It includes two-storey buildings for a checkpoint, warehouses and food stalls.
“There are ten operators running highway air-conditioned bus for Tamu-Monywa, Tamu-Mandalay and Tamu-Yangon routes. And, 12 operators are proving service for cross-border transport. The terminal is situated not far from town, market and border checkpoint. As there are vacant land areas, more buildings or gates can be built later,” said U Ye Swe Win, chair of Private Motor Vehicles Management Committee. This terminal project started in June 2018 under the approval of Sagaing Region government and Township Development Committee and other relevant organizations to facilitate the trading and transport of the local people.— Chindwinthar (Translated by Ei Myat Mon)
