The Vice-President, together with Union Minister Dr Aung Thu, Deputy Ministers U Tin Myint, Maj-Gen Soe Tint Naing and Rear-Admiral Myint Nwe and officials, came to Mawlamyine in Mon State from Myeik in Taninthayi Region by helicopter.
During the bridge inspection tour, Mon State Chief Minister Dr Aye Zan, State ministers and officials accompanied the Vice-President.

The Vice-President gave guidance on planting shady trees on both sides of the road at the foot of the bridge and maintaining the bridge for durability.
The bridge located three miles east of Kyaikmaraw Town is 2,113 feet and 2 inches long and 34 feet and 6 inches wide. It has a motorway of 23 feet and 7 inches wide; its vertical clearance is 46 feet; its horizontal clearance is 360 feet.
Construction of the bridge began on 30 December 2018, and it was completed on 30 September 2020. It costs K18 billion.
