Amyotha Hluttaw Speaker Mahn Win Khaing Than attended the opening ceremony of Paletwa Bridge in Pyaungtho Village-tract in Bawgali Town, Thandaunggyi Township, Hpa-an District in Kayin State yesterday.
Kayin State Chief Minister Daw Nann Khin Htwe Myint made remarks at the event, and Director of Shwe Swan Inn Company U Zaw Win explained about the construction of the bridge.
Director U Zaw Win presented the documents relating to the road segment of 4.5 miles on Thandaung-Paletwa road section to Deputy Engineer in Chief of Bridge Department of the Ministry of Construction U Tun Lin. A resident expressed words of thanks.
The Amyotha Hluttaw Speaker and the Chief Minister unveiled the bridge’s stone plaque.
The Amyotha Hluttaw Speaker, the Chief Minister, State Electricity and Energy Minister U Soe Hlaing, Thandaunggyi Township Pyithu Hluttaw MP U Saw Victor Clyde, and in-charge of Shwe Swan Inn Company U Win Maung cut the ceremonial ribbon to open the bridge, have group photos taken, and inspected the bridge.
Transportation between Thaungdaunggyi and Bawgali towns in the past was only by waterways. Completion of the bridge will help the socio-economic development of the locals by smoothing the flow of commodities and easing the transport difficulties of the people in Bawgali Town and its 82 villages of 15 village-tracts.
The two-lane reinforced concrete bridge was jointly constructed by Shwe Swan Inn Company and Asia World Foundation and is 798 feet long, 30 feet wide, and 123 feet in height. —Township (IPRD) (Translated by Kyaw Zin Tun)
