Myanmar Railways (Naypyitaw) said it will call for a tender to build multi-storey car parks and apartments on their acre of land behind Thamada cinema.
Every interested person or company can submit a tender application starting from November, MR said in a statement.
“We are doing this to reduce traffic congestion. York [Yaw Min Gyi] street is very crowded. That’s why we intend to build a car park. School buses will be able to park and traffic congestion will be somewhat resolved,” said U Ba Myint, general manager of Myanmar Railways (Naypyitaw).
When the multi-storey car park is ready, school ferries have to park in that building and if not, they will get punished, MR said.
The building is planned to start construction in 2016 after the tender process has finished. The multi-storey car park aims to provide about 350 parking spaces.
“In other countries, they build car parks to reduce the traffic congestion. People have to park their cars there and have to walk to avoid traffic congestion. That’s why we will build car parks. No one will be able to park their cars wherever they want. That will reduce traffic congestion,” said U Ba Myint.
When the multi-storey car park in York street is finished, more multi-storey car parks will be built in Pazundaung, Insein and Kyimyindine townships, he added.
