Myanmar Road Pavement Project

What is Road pavement?

Road pavement is to cover the surface of road with asphalt, concrete, stone, gravel an so on to prevent sand dust or mud puddle and enhance durability of the road. Pavement with asphalt or concrete requires high costs and skills, so it is necessary for developing countries to pave road easily with local material and workforce.

Why does JIP pave road in Myanmar?

There are many local places in Myanmar where unpaved roads become impassable because of mud and flood during rainy season, which causes severe damage to local society and economy. To improve the situation, JIP prepares technical manuals for easy road pavement and conducts field trials with local residents for technical instruction and job creation.
