To provide convenience for residents of Thukha Dagon public rental housing in Dagon Myothit (South) Township, the Urban and Housing Development Department (UHDD) is preparing to introduce YBS bus lines. The strategic location of the housing complex near the junction of No 2 Highway and No 7 Ring Road, although a bit distant from downtown Yangon, has prompted officials to consider running YBS buses to connect the area more efficiently.
Currently, residents face a 30–45-minute journey to reach the Sanpya market. Buses such as Yangon-Bago, No 97, No. 1 (Hlegu-Yangon), and No 71 (Thayetpinchaung-Yangon) operate on No 2 Highway, but there is no direct bus route between the housing complex and downtown Yangon. Ko Min Min Lwin, a resident of Tamway Township, emphasized the need for a direct bus line to boost the prosperity of the housing compound.
Plans also include the construction of a temporary market within the housing compound, with supermarkets expected to open shortly. The housing project’s first phase, featuring 1,168 apartments, will begin offering rental permits in late August, while the second phase aims to complete over 800 apartments by December. The Urban and Housing Development Department anticipates the entire rental housing project to be finalized by April 2024. — TWA/MKKS
