Train service between Yangon and Mandalay resumed yesterday, after repairs were completed on the damaged track and bridges in flood-hit areas, Yedashe Township, Bago Region.
A test run on BR-305 and Yedashe-Kongyi-Swa railroad was conducted on the repaired railroad sections. The Myanma Railways announced yesterday that the tracks are ready for train services as from 2.25 pm yesterday.
The overflowing water from Swa Dam damaged the bridge and railroad after the dam’s spillway collapsed on 29 August.
“No. 11 Up Train and No.12 Down Train started operation yesterday and crossed the repaired railroad sections,” said Superintending Engineer (Civil) U Soe Myint Aung of Myanma Railways.
