Thanlyin Bridge 3 is seen alongside the old Thanlyin Bridge 1 in Yangon.

According to the Department of Bridges of the Ministry of Construction, construction of the No 3 Thanlyin Bridge, linking Thakayta Township and Thanlyin Township in Yangon Region, has reached 97 per cent completion.
The bridge, described as a cable-stayed type with steel and PC boxes, is designed to accommodate vehicles weighing up to 75 tonnes, the report confirms.
Construction of the bridge began in May 2019 with assistance from Japan. It consists of four lanes and includes a 602-metre-long approach bridge on the Thakayta side and an 807-metre-long approach bridge on the Thanlyin side. The main bridge spans 1,224 metres, resulting in a total length of 2,633 metres (8,638 feet). The bridge provides a water clearance of 13.25 metres (43 feet).
Once completed, the new bridge will facilitate smoother transport of goods between Yangon, Thanlyin, and the Thilawa Special Economic Zone, alleviating traffic congestion on the existing bridge. — ASH/TMT
