Yet despite completion of five flyovers in the last three years, and at busy city intersections where rush-hour traffic is often at a standstill, it seems dubious that the government will be able to quell traffic woes. This has not stopped construction of the overpasses at 8-Mile and Tamwe junctions, however. Started last year, the Y-shaped flyover at Tamwe, where five roads meet, is probably the biggest of Rangoon’s seven overpasses, stretching across Banya Dala, U Ching Maung and East Equestrian roads. With 60 percent to be completed by month’s end, the flyover is likely to be open for public use in April, according to Sein Win, an executive engineer of Shwe Taung Development Co, Ltd., which has invested an estimated 25.5 billion kyats in construction of the overpass.
