The subway will be built near to Saikpyoyay bus stop in Kamaryut township, said U Tin Maung Kyi, head of Yangon City Development Committee’s engineering department (roads and bridges) to The Myanmar Times.
“It will be roughly at this location, though we can’t say exactly when it will be built,” he said. “We proposed they build a walkway over the road, but they want to build it underground.”
The underpass will allow walkers to cut beneath heavy traffic on one of Yangon’s busiest roads, in an area near to Yangon University and a major junction at Hledan.
Ma Aye Mon Thu of Shwe Taung Development Company confirmed the project was in the pipeline. “We are still preparing to announce details, hopefully in the coming week,” she said.
By the end of this financial year, YCDC hopes to complete six pedestrian bridges in congested areas including over Sule Pagoda Road, Shwedagon Pagoda Road, Pyay Road, Insein Road and Strand Road.
