Ministry of Railways (Burma) going to revive the Death Railway from Thanbyuzayat to Hpayarthonesu (Burmese side of Three Pagoda Pass)

Burma Confirms Plans to Resurrect Death Railway
By LAWI WENG / THE IRRAWADDY| July 4, 2012 |


Burma’s Railways Minister Aung Min has confirmed plans to begin construction later this year of a railway linking Rangoon and Bangkok along the route of the notorious “Death Railway” built by Japanese-held prisoners of war during the Second World War.

Aung Min, who also acts as a government negotiator in talks with Burma’s ethnic armed groups, said during a press conference in Naypyidaw on July 1 that survey work on the project has already begun, and construction will commence at the end of the rainy season.

He added that the 415-km railway (Actually, ONLY 112 km is in Burma side while 303 km is on Thai side) would benefit local people in Mon State, through which it will run, and will also facilitate closer trade ties with Thailand.

In 1943, thousands of Allied POWs and Asian laborers worked under the Imperial Japanese Army to build the Burma Railway, which later came to be known as the Death Railway because of the number of lives lost during the construction process. Many of the 1,740 people who died while working on the project are buried at the nearby war cemetery in Kanchanaburi.

The railway was abandoned more than six decades ago due to fighting between Burma’s armed forces and the Karen National Uni0n (KNU). However, local motorists continue to use the route to travel from Three Pagodas Pass to Thanbyuzayat Township, Mon State, or Kyar Inn Seik Gyi Township, Karen State.

Once hostilities between Naypyidaw and the KNU came to an end with the signing of a ceasefire agreement earlier this year, Burma expressed a strong interest in reviving the long-disused railway. The KNU also appears to support the project, although it has not made any public statement about it.

Another ethnic armed group that controls territory along the railway’s route, the New Mon State Party, has also given its tacit support.

During the press conference on Sunday, Aung Min said that Naypyidaw plans to launch a multilateral conference including all ethnic people in Burma—a longstanding demand of many of the country’s ethnic armed groups.

Reviving the Death railway with the length of 105 km from Thanbyusayat to Pyathongsu (Three Pagoda pass - Burmese side) with the following price tag:

150 families ordered to move from Three Pagoda Pass
Thursday, 12 July 2012 12:50 Kun Chan

Chiang Mai (Mizzima) – About 150 Burmese families who have lived on army land with permission in the Three Pagoda Pass area will be forced to move from their homes by Nov. 1, according to residents.


Three Pagodas Pass, a border checkpoint between Thailand and Burma Photo: joaquinuy / flickr On July 7, residents living on land owned by Light Infantry Unit No. 283 in Ward No. 2 and Ward No. 3 of Three Pagoda Pass were summoned to a meeting at Rose Yeiktha in Takkon and told to leave within a month, but after negotiations the date was extended to Nov. 1.

An estimated 800 people who are ex-servicemen, family members of civil servants or families of deceased servicemen are now living on the land, said residents.

The ward administrative office said that it would relocate the families to land at the foot of “Kyauktaung” hill [west of the Myopat Road], but the families must buy the land with prices ranging from 10,000 to 30,000 baht. Most families say they cannot afford to buy the land.

“All the people living there are poor, so it’s impossible that they can buy land plots at other places,” said a civil servant living in the township.

A woman said, “We don’t even have 1,000 baht. So, how can we buy land? Will we have to stay at a refugee camp?”

Authorities did not explain the order to move from the land.

However, residents said the order could be related to an industrial zone that will be set up in Three Pagoda Pass and the rebuilding of the “Death Railway” from World War II, which is scheduled to be upgraded to attract tourists to the area. Because of these projects, real estate prices in Three Pagoda Pass have sharply increased, residents said.

Meanwhile, the regional development group and local authorities have jointly bought land plots in strategic areas, according to local sources.

Earlier, the price of a land plot 40 feet x 60 feet on the outskirts of the town ranged from 70,000 to 100,000 baht. But, since the Union government agreed to a cease-fire with the New Mon State Party and the Karen National Union, the prices have ranged from 300,000 to 400,000 baht.

On July 1, Railway Minister Aung Min told the media in Naypyitaw that surveys would be started in order to start work on rebuilding the “Death Railway” after the monsoon.

Yangon Circle Line train line - To see the real Myanmar
By sepilokf…
Jul 20, 2012

The Yangon Circle Line train ride costs USD1. From the Yangon Railway Station, the train makes a big circular loop around Yangon. In around 4hrs, the train will take you back to where it started.

This ride might give you a shock in your life. But it is the real Myanmar, the Myanmar that trapped in the time capsule of 60 years ago and never progress! It is difficult to see after you visited the Big4 because tourist area is always nicer presented. It is not about the things that have been done by the people nor the government, but it is about the things had not been done!

There is a reason why the capital is move to another place which is nicely built with beautiful building and modern highway. When you take this train ride, you will find out the reason as any foreign dignitaries will not see these pictures as they are going to the new capital now.
