Union Minister for Transport and Communications U Thant Sin Maung travelled by an RBE train along the Nay Pyi Taw-Bago railway section on 21 July and inspected the train stations, bridges and railway sections undergoing upgradation.
The union minister and his entourage first arrived at the Pyi Win Station and Tharweihti Station and observed the passenger and cargo transportation systems, the staff organisation and checking out whether there were enough staff members and whether the staff residences required renovation to withstand the rainy season. The union minister and his entourage then passed through Yayni, Myo Hla, Swar, Kone Gyi, Kyaytaw and Toungoo stations.
There, they met with station officials and staff members and inspected the piles of stones to be used for paving roads and their size and quality. The union minister instructed officials to ensure there was no wastage of stones used in paving the road and that the staff were properly sheltered from the rain.
The union minister and his entourage then passed through Pyu, Tawkywe Inn, Penwegone and Nyaungpinthar stations and met with staff members. He encouraged them to work harder in upgrading the Yangon-Toungoo railway section. He instructed them to ensure the concrete sleepers, stones for paving the road and the railway tracks arrived on time so that laying/upgrading the railways, concrete sleepers and train signals would be duly completed. He told the staff to be cautious so that there were no delays in the railway schedule, as there would be changes to the schedule during the upgrading process. He also told them to offer the best services to passengers and respond to any issues.
Once the Yangon-Toungoo railway upgradation is completed, trains will be able to travel at 100 km/h, enabling passengers to reach their destinations in a shorter amount of time.—Myanmar News Agency
