Authorities Start Building New Jetty on Yangon River

The authorities have started building a new jetty at Dala bank on Yangon river with Japanese aid to replace the existing one which reportedly doesn’t meet safety standards, officials said.

The existing Dala bank jetty was damaged by Cyclone Nargis in 2008.

The new facility will include two bridges for arrival and departure, a wharf and a recreation lounge, the Inland Water Transport Authority (IWTA) said.

The construction work is expected to be finished by October.

IWTA said the Japanese government will also provide three ferries which will operate between the Dala and Pansodan jetties.
