Bus line gates from Chan Mya Shwe Pyi bus terminal would be moved to a temporary bus terminal near Tagondine roundabout not later than December, said Mandalay City Development Committee (MCDC) member U Kyaw Hsan Myint.
The reconstruction design of Chan Mya Shwe Pyi bus terminal has been approved after M-Development Corporation (Myanmar) Co. Ltd., bus gate owners, bus owners and bus terminal regulator teams met at MCDC’s meeting hall on 3 September. Therefore, bus line gates are being planned to be moved out to a temporary bus terminal.
“When we submitted a draft of reconstruction design, bus line gate owners agreed with the design. So, the bus line gates have to move out not later than December 2018 to start the project. The project is expected to be completed in 2020. The temporary bus terminal is located near Tagondine roundabout,” he added.
The company and a group comprising around 20 members of bus line gate owners and bus owners will hold monthly meeting in Yangon to negotiate requirements for the reconstruction project. The new bus terminal will be a landmark of Mandalay and will be the first international standard highway bus terminal in Myanmar.
Upon completion of the project, the Chan Mya Shwe Pyi bus terminal will include international passenger lounges, ticket sale counters, shops and food courts, he added.
