Myanmar Builds More Bridges to Link Capital,  Regions


               YANGON (Nov. 20) XINHUA - Four more bridges
               are being built to link the Myanmar capital of
               Yangon with surrounding areas as well as states
               and divisions to speed up the flow of commodities. 

               Official newspaper The New Light of Myanmar said
               today the four bridges of Maha Bandoola,
               Ngamoeyeik, Shwepyitha and Aungzeya, whose
               lengths range from 236 meters to 570 meters, are
               to connect Yangon with Dawbon, Shwepyitha and
               Hlaingtharya as well as states and divisions. 

               Construction of the four bridges are expected to be
               completed in 1999. 

               Meanwhile, two major bridges across Myanmar's
               Ayeyarwady River have also been under
               construction to cut short the travel time between its
               eastern and western banks. Another two bridges
               over the river have been inaugurated.
