Kokkine junction flyover opens

The Kokkine junction flyover, which was built simultaneously with the Tamwe and 8-Mile junction flyovers, opened to public on 31 January.

The bridge, whose construction cost Ks 13.93 billion, was completed two months ahead of schedule.

Capital Construction, the company that was awarded the rights to build the bridge through a tender process, reported that the 505-metre-long bridge has four traffic lanes, which can accommodate vehicles 12.89 metres to 14.64 metres wide, 4.9 metres high and weighing a maximum of 75 tonnes. The maximum speed on the flyover has been set at 60 kilometres per hour.

Construction on the Kokkine flyover and its counterparts began amid heavy criticisms that they would not effectively solve traffic issues, as demonstrated by the Hledan, Bayintnaung, Shwegonedine and Myaynigone flyovers.

“The bridge was finished ahead of schedule. I believe traffic problems will ease up due to the construction of flyovers,” said Tin Maung Win, the managing director of Capital Construction.
