Myanmar to tender rail modernisation projects

THE government of Myanmar is expected to issue international tenders in the coming months for the upgrading of the country’s main rail arteries, according to reports in the local media.

A report by Eleven News Myanmar on March 22 quotes Mr Kyaw Kyaw Myo, assistant general manager for the country’s Ministry of Railways as saying that 13 lines have been identified for modernisation in the medium-term, five of which have been prioritised for urgent upgrading.

The priority routes include:

• Rangoon – Mandalay
• Mandalay – Myitkyina
• Bago – Mottama – Yay
• Rangoon – Pyay, and
• the Rangoon Circular Railway

The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has reportedly offered to provide a $US 202m loan for the Rangoon – Mandalay project and the government plans to obtain a $US 100m loan for the upgrading of the Bago – Yay line. A loan application will be submitted to Korea’s Exim Bank for the modernisation of the Mandalay – Myitkyina line.
