South Korea to assist with Twantay canal development

South Korea is providing help to draw up the main plans for the Twantay canal development, sources say.

The Directorate of Water Resources and Improvement of River Systems has signed an agreement with the ISAN Corporation from South Korea to conduct a survey for the canal’s development, according to a directorate official.

“The ISAN Corporation will assist with the costs of the survey for the canal development plan,” said director general Tun Lwin Oo.

The Twantay canal links the Yangon and Toe rivers and is 21 miles in length. It was built in 1873 during the British colonial period and completed in 1917, making it nearly a century old.

The canal was built for ships from the delta region, upper parts of the Ayeyawady River, and the Chindwin River to dock at Yangon.

Due to old age and changing extremities in the water flow, the banks of the Twantay canal have collapsed. The department has thus made a priority of preserving the canal, said Tun Lwin Oo.
