Ks5.5 billion from President’s special fund goes to highway project
Special maintenance work for the new Phaungpyin-Pinlebu Highway, an important road for the development of the upper Chindwin river region, that will be constructed using the president’s special fund was discussed yesterday in Pyidaungsu Hluttaw.
The Members of Parliament discussed the case sent by the president to spend Ks 5.5 billion from the president’s special fund under the 2016 Union Budget Law for performing special maintenance work for the 29 mile-long high way in Sagaing Region at the 16th day of fourth regular section of second Pyidaungsu Hluttaw.
“The road which would be constructed is important for the development of the upper Chindwin Region. I support it,” said U Tin Maung Win, Member of Parliament for No. 10 constituency in Sagaing Region.
He added that the government needs to upgrade not only the highway but also all the connected roads to be travelled in any season and to execute bridges and roads for long-term use after being upgraded.
“I welcome the implementation of the road because the upper Chindwin can be reached not only by waterway but land route. It should be done for the people who depend only on the risky water transport,” said Daw Yin Min Hlaing, Member of Constituency for Gangaw.
She highlighted the responsible persons when presenting the road implementation section and pointed out the need to present more details in the implementation plan so that quality roads can be built by responsible use of public money spent.
The speaker of Pyidaungsu Hluttaw announced the recording of cases for the reforming of territorial extension and renaming, to extend town, quarters and villages in Regions and States sent by the president office, under the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw Law, section 58.
