Rakhine State Chief Minister U Nyi Pu inspected Kyatsin bridge yesterday, which is under construction on the Myebon-Minbya Road in Rakhine State, along with Teingyo Bridge and Darlat Bridge on the Yangon-Sittway Road.
Teinbyo Bridge, which crosses Thiri Creek on the Yangon-Sittway Road in MyaukU Township, is nearly completed and expected to be commissioned into service soon.
The iron reinforced bridge is 360 ft long and 30 ft wide, and is able to withstand loads of some 60 tons.
The bridge was built by the Group-2 of the Ministry of Construction.
Afterwards, the Chief Minister visited Kyatsin Bridge, which spans the Kyatsin River between milepost 22/4 and 23/1 of the road from Minbya to Myebon. This bridge is still under construction.
Construction of the bridge started on 1 July, 2014 and is expected to be opened soon.
Once the bridge is open, the flow of commodities will increase and the lives of the people in the region will improve.
Kyatsin Bridge is 1,920 ft. long and has a road width of 24 ft., as well as a 3 ft-wide pedestrian path on both sides. The bridge’s foundation includes reinforced bore piles. The body of the bridge is made of reinforced concrete, with an upper structure of a steel frame plate girder and reinforced concrete flooring.
The waterway under the Kyatsin Bridge is 215 ft. wide (65.53 metres), and the clearance between the water and bridge is 39 ft. 4 inches.
The bridge can accommodate vehicles weighing 75 tonnes and costs an estimated K11.145 billion. At present, commuting between Minbya and Myebon had to be done via the Z-craft and small crafts, which is especially difficult at night.
In the afternoon, Chief Minister U Nyi Pu also inspected the Darlat Bridge, which has been completed and will soon be inaugurated. The bridge is 960 ft long and 30 ft wide, and can withstand loads of 75 tons. Additionally, the Satyokya Bridge over the Satyokya Creek in Sittway has been completed and is expected to be inaugurated soon.
