Yangon Port currently will build seven more jetty bridges for the convenience of international ships, in addition to the seven already under construction.
In fiscal year 2003-04, only 917 international ships were able to dock at Yangon Port but in fiscal 2013-14, the number rose sharply to 2,334. There is an urgent need for more jetty bridges due to the sharp increase in traffic, as a result construction of seven more jetty bridges are being planned in addition to the seven jetty bridges already under construction.
Yangon Port has 18 jetty bridges right now. Once the current seven are completed followed by another seven, the number of jetty bridges will go up to 32.
This will facilitate more international ships to be able to dock, and trade along the sea route will also increase.
For international ships to enter more easily following this increase in trading, other kinds of bridges such as the one used for petroleum, for crops, and commodities have been expanded.
