Villagers join construction of concrete road in Thaton Tsp

A rural road is being upgraded to a concrete facility linking Winpa and Ywathit villages in Thaton Township, Mon State.
Thanks to concerted efforts of local people and officials, the road has been completed by 90 per cent.
“We voluntarily participate in construction of a concrete road by collecting gravels and sand from the creek so as to save money,” local U Thein Than said on 13 January.
Local authorities allotted K12 million for construction of the road in 2014-15 fiscal year. Local people participate in construction tasks of a 1500-foot-long and 12-foot-wide road. Two 50 feet long bridges will be constructed across two bridges on the road.
“When we harvested fruits and crops, brokers purchased the products but they gave lower prices than the actual prices. They gave reasons that they came to the village along the road in poor transport. We were also difficult to sell our products to the market directly. So, we accepted the prices they gave. Upon completion of the road, we can send our crops and products to the market directly and get good prices,” said abbot U Pañña of Winpa monastery.–Thet Oo (Thaton)
