Rangoon’s Shwe Gone Daing Flyover Opened to Traffic

2 December 2013

Rangoon’s Shwe Gone Daing flyover was opened up to traffic for the first time Sunday after a year of construction, the Myanma Freedom Daily reports. Kaba Aye Pagoda Road now rises in a bridge that avoids the bottleneck of the junction with Shwe Gone Daing Road, and it is hoped the flyover will alleviate traffic at one of the main thoroughfares connecting downtown Rangoon with the north of the city and the airport. Rangoon’s municipal body, the Yangon City Development Committee, has launched projects to build similar flyovers at a number of other traffic hotspots in the city as the number of cars on the former capital’s streets rises.
