One section of the Yangon-Pyay railway.

The Yangon-Pyay express train temporarily suspended its operation due to water erosion that resulted in potholes between the Thegon and Sinmyeeswe railway section in Thegon Township of the Bago Region.
The heavy rain caused 24 potholes between 143/8 and 143/13 mileposts on the Yangon-Pyay railway recently.
Therefore, No 72 down express train and No 64 down mail train from Pyay to Yangon, No 71 up Yangon-Pyay express train suspended their services while No 63 up mail train from Yangon to Pyay stopped at the Thegon railway station.
The repair work is being carried out to resume the suspended train services, according to Myanma Railways.
The MR now arranges to run the Yangon-Mawlamyine-Yangon train daily from 25 July and two Yangon-Pyay-Yangon express trains from 20 August. The No 61 up train from Yangon will depart at 8:30 pm and arrive in Pyay at 5:15 am. The No 62 down train from Pyay will leave at 7:45 am and reach Yangon at 4:30 pm.
The MR makes arrangements to facilitate public transport and the flow of goods. It will extend the routes depending on the number of passengers. — TWA/GNLM
