Three Japanese companies to take part in Yangon-Mandalay Railway Project Phase 1 as main contractor

Three Japanese companies are going to take part in upgrading the Phase-One of Yangon-Mandalay Railway Project as main contractors and A1, Shwetaung, Dagon and Max from Myanmar as sub-contractors, according to Myanma Railways.

The Phase-One of Yangon-Mandalay Railway Project is from Yangon to Toungoo and that it will start on October 1. The main contractors from Japan are Sumitomo Corporation, TEKKEN-RN JV, Tokyu Construction Marubeni Niigata Consortium and Barons & Fujikura EPC Co., Ltd.

“Sumitomo Corporation is the main contractor for the Cp 1 of Yangon-Mandalay Railway Project and A1 is to act as the sub-contractor. TEKKEN-RN JV is the main contractor for the CP 2 and Max and Dagon are sub-contractors. Tokyu is the main contractor for the Cp3 and Shwetaung, the sub-contractor. The sub-contractors are many from Myanmar,” said Ba Myint.

The Phase-One of Yangon-Mandalay Railway Project is from Yangon to Toungoo and that it will start on October 1. The original two lanes system will be changed into one-lane on a temporary basis.

“During the project period, the MR won’t cut the number of train services for ensuring that the travelers will see difficulty in the travel. Regular train services will be provided to the commuters. We have planed to provide a parcel train to carry parcels and goods every day,” Ba Myint told the media professionals.

The Yangon-Mandalay Railway Project is divided into two parts—one is Yangon to Toungoo with 166 miles and the other is Toungoo to Mandalay with 219.5 miles.
