According to information from the Ministry of Transport and Communications, construction of the frontage road at Thilawa Port, including a traffic island, has been completed. The opening ceremony for the new road took place on 28 April.
The new road, measuring five miles and two furlongs in length, was constructed at a total cost of K28.35 billion, funded by the Myanma Port Authority and port businesses. The expansion of the levee for the four-lane road was financed by the supplementary Capital Budget of the Yangon Region government, enabling swift renovation.
Previously a two-lane road, the frontage road has now been expanded and upgraded to four lanes, alleviating previous traffic congestion issues. Presently, there have been no reports of traffic congestion with lorries and tank trucks at Thilawa Port, resulting in safe and efficient transportation.
The newly constructed four-lane road is expected to enhance the role of Thilawa Port as a hub for combined transport (multimodal transport) and improve connectivity with inland circulation systems (hinterland connectivity). Additionally, traffic congestion is anticipated to decrease with the implementation of technology and innovation.
The construction of the new frontage road at Thilawa Port relied on collaborative effort involving the Ministry of Transport and Communications, supervision by the Yangon Region government, the Ministry of Construction, Yangon City Development Committee, Yangon Electricity Supply Corporation, contributions from Thilawa Port entrepreneurs, and oversight by the Myanma Port Authority. — TWA/TMT
