On May 31, local people held an opening ceremony for a submersible bridge in Sagaing, northern Myanmar, for which we recently reported the completion of the JIP-contracted portion. The bridge opening was celebrated in a traditional way by the local monks.
In this bridge, DRRD (Department of Regional Road Development, Ministry of Construction, Myanmar) is responsible for the construction of 56m out of the total length of the bridge of 208m. However, the bridge is not yet complete, and vehicles are not allowed to pass through. All that remains is to fill this section with soil and pave it with a simple pavement, so DRRD will complete the work as soon as possible while paying attention to the local security situation.
