Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing inspected progress in implementation of Bago River Bridge (Thanlyin Bridge-3) project and Myanmar-Korea friendship (Dala) bridge project in Yangon Region yesterday morning.
At Bago River Bridge (Thanlyin Bridge-3) project to link Thakayta and Thanlyin townships, Union Minister for Construction U Myo Thant reported to the Senior General on implementation of the project in phases, availability of bridge construction techniques and experiences, quality control measures and environmental conservation.
The Senior General stressed the need to systematically carry out the construction tasks to meet the standards with endurance of iron and steel materials against salty water. The Senior General called for timely completion of the project.
The Senior General inspected progress of the project and gave necessary guidance.
Upon completion, the Bago River Bridge (Thanlyin Bridge-3) project can ease traffic congestion from Thanlyin Bridge-1. Thilawa Special Economic Zone will help improve socioeconomic life of the people from Thanlyin, Kyauktan, Kayan and Thongwa regions of Yangon Region due to booming businesses of local and foreign businesspersons. It will help develop Thilawa SEZ and Thanlyin region and use the East-West economic corridor to link the road to Hpa-an and Myawady. So, it will benefit Mon and Kayin States for their development as well as improve connection with regional countries. As the bridge is under construction with the use of modern technologies, Myanmar engineers will have modern technologies and experiences and help turn out skilled labours. Moreover, it will create job opportunities for the locals.
On arrival at Myanmar-Korea friendship (Dala) bridge project, the Senior General heard reports on implementation of the guidance of the Senior General on his inspection tour in June 2022, completion of piers of the bridge, quality control measures at the bridge, worksite safety and environmental conservation by Union Minister for Construction U Myo Thant.
In his guidance, the Senior General said as the project approach road is close to residential houses, an emphasis must be placed on systematic calculation on endurance against dangers and earthquakes. As the long time project will cause traffic congestion, efforts must be made for timely completion of the project.
The Senior General presented cash awards for engineers from both projects through officials. The Senior General inspected undertakings on the main bridge pylon 2 on Yangon bank.
The project was implemented in 2013 and construction tasks started in 2015. It will be a cable-stayed bridge. Upon completion of the bridge, people from Yangon will have easy access to Dala, Twantay, Kawhmu and Kungyangon townships and to Ayeyawady Region via Dedaye Bridge, lessening traffic congestion in Yangon to some extent. As such, the bridge will be a landmark of Yangon due to development of social, economic, education, health and transport sectors. — MNA/TTA
