While upgrading the Yangon City circular railway, the Danyingon-Mingalardon-Paywetseikkon rail road is being renovated, with plans calling for its completion within six months to ensure the convenience of commuters, said U Min Aung, the project engineer for the Yangon circular railway upgrading project.
“The upgrading of the Yangon City circular railway has been divided into two segments. The first segment will include Danyingon-Insein-Kyimyindaing-Yangon, while the second segment is for the Danyingon-Mingalardon-Paywetseikkon-Yangon.
The Danyingon-Insein part of the project is 90 per cent completed, whereas the Insein- Kyimyindaing route will be finished by 27 February. Then, Myanma Railway (MR) will upgrade its infrastructure outside of the circular railway route.
“The Danyingon-Mingalardon-Paywetseikkon railway route is one of the important parts of the circular railway route. It is being renovated to be finished within six months,” said U Min Aung. The Danyingon-Minglardon-Paywetseikkon railway route is being built anew. The project was started on 21 November and is expected to be completed by 21 May. The Danyingon-Mingalardon-Paywetseikkon railway route is being renovated by Shwe Taung Company and Myanma Railway (MR) engineering department. Similarly, the Danyingon-Insein-Kyimyindaing project will be carried out by A1 company and MR’s staff. MR is also upgrading the level crossings. Upon completion of the railway upgrading project, the locomotive and coaches will also be upgraded. Afterwards, MR will be able to run the circular trains at a speed of 60 kilometers per hour. According to MR, over 200,000 commuters rely on the circular train service daily.—Myint Maung Soe (Translated by Hay Mar)
