Officials seen inspecting the Thanlyin Bridge 3, connecting Thakayta and Thanlyin townships of Yangon Region.

Union Minister for Construction U Myo Thant, directors-general, and officials inspected the ongoing construction of the Thanlyin Bridge 3, connecting Thakayta and Thanlyin townships of Yangon Region, yesterday.
On the Thakayta side of the bridge, the official in charge presented the potential contributions of the bridge to the Thilawa Special Economic Zone to the Union Minister. The Union minister instructed the engineering team to install aviation lights, lightning rods, required resistance levels in Ohms, and navigation lights for safety.
Regarding the construction of the toll plaza and control building on the Thakayta side, the Union Minister suggested implementing QR code-assisted tolling and mobile payments in addition to manual toll collection. He then inspected the asphaltic concrete paving on the approach lanes.
The bridge, built in line with international standards, is 2,633 metres (8,638 feet) long and features four driving lanes. It is a suspension bridge with a clearance height of 13.25 metres (43 feet), allowing ships to pass through easily.
The bridge will potentially help boost the Thilawa SEZ and other economic zones, as well as alleviate traffic congestion in Yangon. — MNA/NT
