The upgraded Mezali Bridge on Pathein-Monya road will be inaugurated on Monday, 28 October, according to the Ministry of Construction.
The bridge is located at mile post no.295 on Pathein-Monya road in Pwintbyu Township, Minbu District in Magway Region, and was rebuilt by Construction Group No. 3 under the Department of Bridges of the Ministry of Construction in October 2018.
The original suspension bridge, which is 400-foot long, was upgraded to a steel box girder bridge, with its width enlarged from 20 to 24-foot.
The main bridge cost K 2,500 million, with its bridge approaches costing K 200 million, at a total cost of K 2,700 million allocated by the Union Budget.
U Tun Lin, the project director, said the bridge was built by the construction team comprised of an assistant director, a township head engineer and three junior engineers from Construction Group No. 3, along with over 100 workers.
The completion of the bridge will benefit the lives of local people and improve the flow of goods.
It will also help pilgrims traveling to famous pagodas in the region, including Shwesettaw Pagoda, Magway Mya Tha Lun Pagoda and Naga Bwet Taung. — Pwint Thitsar (Translated by Kyaw Zin Tun)
