BRIEF - Rangoon subway on track for 2025 completion

Implementation planning is underway for 10 km of subway and elevated train systems in Rangoon, said Railway Transportation Minister Than Htay. Assisted by the Japan International Cooperation Agency, the Rangoon regional government hopes to complete the project by 2025. The Japanese government has been instrumental in upgrading Burma’s transit systems, having previously granted the ministry a loan for renovation of the dilapidated Rangoon – Mandalay railway.
