Yangon City Development Committee reported that maintenance of the wooden bridge in Kandawgyi Lake is expected to complete at the end of January.
This curved wooden bridge is 7,237 feet long and 17 feet and six inches wide. The maintenance work began in the 2017-2018 financial year. About 6,737 feet long bridge part has been restored so far and mending of the remaining part is slated to end this month, YCDC stated.
Yangon mayor U Bo Htay, who is also chairman of YCDC and minister for Yangon Region Development Affairs, accompanied by the officials concerned, inspected the reconstruction work implemented by YCDC Engineering Department (Road and Bridge) on 5 January.
The maintenance of the wooden bridge walking over the Kandawgyi Lake was carried out with the fund of K1.404 billion allocated by the Yangon Region Government in the 2018-2019 Financial Year.
Maintenance works have been conducted for 1,700 feet bridge parts in FY2016-2017 and 1,330 feet in the 2017-2018FY. In the 2018-2019FY, K940 million out of the proposed budget of K1 billion were allotted for the restoration of 2,000 feet bridge part and only 1,800 feet part was reconstructed.
The COVID-19 consequences hindered construction work. As it is the famous spot for sports and leisure activities, the departments concerned are making effort to complete the project at the soonest time. — Ko Naing (Bago)/GNLM
