Discussions are still underway between Myanmar authorities and the Korean firm set to construct a bridge over the Yangon River connecting downtown Yangon and suburban Dala Township, according to Regional Authorities.
The Korean company, whose name was not disclosed by the authorities, has reportedly conducted a study about the project in 2011 and highlighted its positive impact on the development of Dala Township.
“The Korean company will build a bridge between Yangon and Dala. But it is still in the discussion stages," said an official from the Yangon Region Government.
"The bridge will be very high so that ships can pass below it. Even if the bridge construction is approved, it will take time as the company will need to ask for money from their government."
Yangon City Development Committee said the Korean firm is also interested in constructing a tunnel connecting Yangon and Dala.
