Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing inspected the progress of the Kamyawkin Bridge project yesterday morning.
Union Minister for Construction U Shwe Lay reported on construction, maintenance and upgrade of Phayagyi-Mawlamyine-Dawei-Myeik-Bokpyin-Kawthoung road, Laynya-Yadanabon road, Dawei SEZ-Myitta-Hteekhee road, Dawei detour and Htonkha-Thebyu-Mawtaung road, construction of new Kamyawkin Bridge on Dawei-Kamyawkin-Launglon road and progress of works in financial years, number of bridges above 180 feet long in the Taninthayi Region, and upgrade of rural roads for all-season use.
After hearing the reports, the Senior General stressed the need to systematically carry out land preparations for the construction of the roads for long term existence as the region has high rainfalls. Shoulders of the roads must be built in accord with the norms for traffic safety. As there are some six million motorcycles across the nation, it is necessary to pave the way for motorcycles. The construction of urban and rural roads must be standardized for the development of towns and villages. Guard posts must be facilitated at the bending of the roads for avoiding traffic accidents. Bridges must be built meeting set standards to have exact withstanding and long-term existence. Rural roads must be good for rural people for their transportation.
The Senior General inspected the construction of the Kamyawkin Bridge and left the necessary instructions.
Kamyawkin Bridge on Dawei-Kamyawkin-Launglon road across Dawei River will be 1,050 feet long. The facility is of reinforced concrete, with a 24-foot motor road and five-foot pedestrian ways. The water clearance of the bridge will be 164 feet wide and 16 feet high. The project started on 16 February 2021 and is expected to complete in March 2023. — MNA
