Myanmar prepares for transport master plan implementation, expects more regional links

Posted on : 06 Jan, 2015


Myanmar's ambitious 30-year National Transport Development Master Plan is expected to be rolled out. Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has drawn up a blueprint of the master plan already. The master plan covers all sectors - railways, aviation, roads & bridges and ports.


JICA says that the period from 2014 to 2020 will be dedicated to revamp Myanmar's basic transport infrastructure. An investment worth 1.166 trillion yen is required over six years, says JICA.


Myanmar's officials are confident that the proposed transport master plan will play a key role in not only linking ASEAN member countries but also connect important neighboring countries like India and China via air, land or marine corridors.


The frontier nation's aviation sector looks promising as a number of international airlines are eying opportunities in the emerging market, driven by tourism sector growth and the government facilitating increased investment.


CMT's 2nd Myanmar Transport and Logistics Summit (MTL) to be held in Yangon on 19-20 January, 2015 brings together transport ministry officials and private sector investors to share further details on the country's transport and logistics future roadmap.

Myanmar to upgrade Yangon circular railway for $700 million

Posted on : 27 Nov, 2014


Myanmar is gearing up with major transport system revamps. It is estimated that the Ministry of Rail Transportation plans to spend over US$700 million to upgrade Yangon's circular railroad.


The estimated amount is only for revamping the railway and train coaches.


The work is expected to begin in 2015 and Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) will assist in the project.


The plan is to extend the railway section and replace coaches. Moreover, after the upgrade, the circular train's speed will increase from its current 30 miles per hour to 80 miles per hour.


After this phase of the upgrade work is completed, the ministry plans to construct a sky train with the help of foreign loans.


The ministry also plans to upgrade stations, build fences, and install alarm system and automatic gates.


The tender for the upgrade of Yangon railway station has already been opened for local and foreign companies.


More on Myanmar's railways will be discussed at the 2nd Myanmar Transport and Logistics Summit on 19-20 January, 2015 in Yangon.
