The Yangon Region government is preparing to convert 15 streets in Pazundaung Township into one-way streets. The plan was in the regional parliament announced yesterday by regional minister for electricity, industry, and transport Nilar Kyaw.

According to the minster, the decision was based on an assessment conducted by YCDC’s Roads and Bridges Department, the township development committee, and the General Administration Department.

“As a result of our inspection, [we agreed that creating] one-way streets could ease the traffic jams,” Nilar Kyaw told the parliament.

“We have a backup plan in case the traffic jam gets worse,” she added.

The new one-way roads will include 49th, 50th, 51st, 52nd, 53rd, 54th, 55th, and 56th streets, plus Ye Kyaw, Zizawar, Dawna, Yuzana, Wutkyaung, and Myaungkyi streets.

It is not yet clear what the final  street will be.

“The department will set up the required traffic signs,” the minister said.
