The construction of Bayintnaung Bridge No.2 that will run parallel to the existing Bridge No.1 has begun now according to the Ministry of Construction.
The durability of the new bridge is designed to carry a 75-ton loaded truck. However, for the safety purpose, 30-ton loaded trucks will be allowed to pass through as maximum weights.
The new bridge is being built to a width of four lanes which is wider than the Bridge No.1 to solve the heavy traffic during rush hour.
The new bridge is connected to Hlaing Thaya Township that leads to Dala ,Twantay , Kawhmu, Pharpon and Bogalay.
Despite the Bridge No.1, freightliner and container truck drivers are using Aung Zeya Bridge as main bridge to load and unload in Bayintnaung Wholesales Center, the busiest marketplace in Yangon.
Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) made a detour through the backstreets of Thirimon Housing to eliminate the traffic conjunction, and will also build four more bridges at Pazuntaung, Htantapin, Kyimyindin and Tharkayta across the Yangon River and Hlaing River for connecting central Yangon and the other side of the city.
