A modern three-storey market is being constructed on the old Mayyu Market site in Sittway, Rakhine State using Australian design technology, officials said yesterday.
A local company, Western Shining Stars, is starting the construction beside Mayyu Road, Football Ward, Sittway with the permission of the Rakhine State Ministry.
Western Shining Stars is owned by Sittway locals and is constructing the market together with Golden Green Energy Co. on a 50-50 basis sharing the total construction cost estimated to be more than Ks7 billion.
The market complex is three-acres wide and will house government and public banks. Shops will also be constructed in the market compound. The three-storey market is a reinforced concrete building with four escalators and two lifts and is expected to be completed in mid-2019.
