Some traffic signposts are seen on the sides of the roads.

In the downtown areas of Yangon, significant road markings and traffic signposts are being established by authorities particularly in Lanmadaw Township where the Yangon-Dala bridge project is being implemented, according to the residents.
In addition to the drawing of crosswalks, signposts informing about the presence of crosswalks and traffic lights have been erected on each side of the road. U San Tint, a 70-year-old pensioner, who has lived in Lanmadaw Township for nearly 20 years said that he has not seen similar road markings or signposts before.
Signposts indicating the street names and directions for entering and exiting the lanes are installed and yellow line road marks where traffic can change are drawn on the lanes. However, there are still violations of traffic rules with some vehicles parking beyond the yellow line of the road, and especially slow-moving vehicles often moving in opposite directions of the roads.
“The construction of the bridge is almost finished, so it is being done in advance to prevent the road from becoming a dangerous facility. There may be signs like this before, but it may be that the colour fades and people don’t notice. As the bright colours have been painted and clear signs have been erected, people can walk safely on the road,” said Daw Nwe Ni, a housewife.
There are also criticisms that there is a need to monitor and take measures to ensure that cars and pedestrians utilize the roads appropriately as well as to fully draw and erect relevant road signs. — TWA/TH
