Ferry services for Yangon River see decline by 2023

The Yangon-Dala ferry services might drop obviously by the end of 2023, the passengers said.
The Dala suspension bridge construction over the Yangon River connecting Yangon city and Dala, Twantay, Kawhmu, Kungyangon and Ayeyawady Region is nearly to complete.
If it completes, it can develop the Yangon areas and delta regions. It is estimated to compete by 2023.
The entry and exit were suspended between Bogyoke street and Anawrahta road during Thingyan 2022. The two-lane approach road was constructed on Phonegyi street on the Yangon side, said Ko Than Win from Phonegyi street.
The bridge construction can be seen on both sides of Yangon and Dala including in the Yangon River, said Ko Maung Win, a passenger from Dala.
If it completes, it can save time and the number of passengers will drop significantly, said Ko Maung Zaw, boatman.
“When the bridge completes, the Twantay gate will be on the side of Yangon. There would be Yangon based bus terminals in Ayeyawady Region. The people might use the road to save time. The ferry services were suspended when the Thanlyin and Pazundaung bridges were completed,” Ko Maung Zaw.
The four-lane Yangon-Dala suspension bridge is 49 metres in height, 151 metres in width and 1,936 feet long (6,143 feet in total). The project term is 39 months. — TWA/GNLM
