Good to see the flyovers being built, but are there plans for such flyovers and road widening in Mandalay and other major cities?

Japanese-based Itochu Corporation will build a Yangon-Thilawa bridge as part of the Thilawa special economic zone project, according to the Ministry of Construction.
A Japanese delegation, led by Koji Umemoto from Itochu Corporation, met with construction minister Kyaw Lwin to discuss matters relating on implementation of construction project in Nay Pyi Taw on August 15.
Japan is the main investor in the Thilawa Special Economic Zone (SEZ), and will be providing basic infrastructure for the construction of the industrial zone deep sea port as well as building the Yangon-Thilawa bridge.
The bridge will cross the Bago River connecting the Thilawa industrial area to central Yangon although the Ministry of Construction has yet to announce a site.
Upon completion of the bridge, local residents will be able to cross three bridges between Yangon and Thanlyin, KyaukTan, Khayan, Thonegwa townships and the Thilawa industrial area.
Japan is giving first priority to infrastructure projects such as the construction of the NgaMoeyeik bridge, the Yangon-Thilawa bridge and upgrading the Yangon-Mandalay highway as well as Yangon’s housing and city development.
Most of these projects will be carried out the Japanese development aid and assistance. The Japanese government will lend US$ 446.86 million to Myanmar in this fiscal year and has agreed to provide over US$ 980 million in loans for the 2016-2017 fiscal year.
Itochu Corporation was founded in 1858 and is based in Osaker and Tokyo. Marubeni Corporation, one of Japan's most famous companies and also a partner of Itochu, is planning to invest in generating electricity, upgrading railroads and constructing basic infrastructures for the Thilawa SEZ.

Korea-Myanmar group proposes $620m Yangon expressway
By Htin Lynn Aung | Thursday, 05 November 2015
Two companies from Korea and a Myanmar conglomerate have submitted a joint proposal to the Ministry of Construction to build an expressway from Yangon to Bago.
Capital Diamond Star Group (CDSG) hopes to work with South Korea’s Lotte E&C and Halla Corporation to build the road, which would link Yangon to a new international airport at Hanthawaddy.
The companies have submitted a joint proposal to the Ministry of Construction, and announced the project via the website of the President’s Office.
CDSG, which built flyovers at Shwegonedaing and Myaynigone junctions, and is working on another at Kokkine junction on Kabar Aye Pagoda Road, did not respond to requests for comment.
If approved, the 20.5-kilometre, four-lane Yangon Urban Expressway Development Project would run from Bogyoke Aung San Road and Yay Kyaw junction in downtown Yangon, to Mingalardon Garden to the north of the city.
The first phase would cost US$620 million, according to the proposal. A second stage would extend the road to Bago and the new airport.
As part of its 2040 master plan for Yangon, the Japan International Cooperation Agency has proposed building two ring-roads around the city. The Urban Expressway Development Project would join with the inner ring road.
If the project goes ahead, it would be a toll-road, with three collection points, each charging US$1. Construction would take five years or less from the date of approval, according to the proposal. The government would need to put up 20 percent of the capital, via an official development assistance low-interest loan, it said.
The Korea International Cooperation Agency told The Myanmar Times in August it had signed with the Ministry of Construction to prepare a feasibility study “to develop the corridor between Yangon and Hanthawaddy, including industrial and residential zones and supporting infrastructure”.
U Toe Aung, director of the Urban Planning department at Yangon City Development Committee said the city desperately needs “long interchange roads to be built as soon as possible. Not only an expressway, but new roads downtown – our department frequently makes this case to the government.”
“But building new projects creates even more congestion, so we need to work out how to do it without exacerbating the current situation,” he said.
Yangon’s first interchanges were built in 2013 and the city now boasts four, with four more under construction.
