The Ministry of Construction will open a reinforced concrete bridge on a road in northern Rakhine State, linking its capital Sittway and Yangon, in December this year.
In a report presented to Chief Minister of Rakhine State U Nyi Pu and cabinet members, during their inspection of the 360-feet-long Teinnyo bridge on Thari creek near the border of Mrauk U and Kyauktaw townships, deputy director U Myint Naing Oo of the ministry said that the facility will be commissioned in December this year, after the project started in May 2017.
Built under the union budget at a cost of Ks2,280 million, the 30-feet-wide bridge, flanked by three-feet pedestrian lanes, can bear up to 60-tonnes of load. Its clearance area is 86 feet.
As the bridge lies on the Yangon-Sittway road, it will facilitate transport between the two destinations, apart from ensuring convenience to people of the townships, including Sittway, Ponnagyun, Kyauktaw, Mrauk U and Minbya in northern Rakhine.—Myint Maung Soe IMG 20180721 115019 72
