Navigation signals set in lower Mingun

Mandalay-Waterway navigation buoys and markers have been installed in the Ayeyawady with the assistance from the World Bank at river waterway for safety of ships travelling for 24 hours.

For the preliminary test run, 20 navigation signals will be installed in Mandalay and Innwa routes. Currently, signals have already been installed in the water route near lower Mingun and Mandalay.

The navigation markers currently installed in river ways were made in Myanmar and ships can travel only during the daytime because there are no night navigation markers. Light buoys and land markers for night navigation will be installed so that ships can travel safely both day and night. Installation of navigations markers onto the bridges will be carried out.

There are two types of navigation markers: in the water and on land. There are also four types of international buoys in the water and two types of markers on land. On bridges, navigation markers with lights will be installed, enabling navigators to see at night.

“From Mandalay to Nyaung Oo, we will install advanced navigation system. During the monsoon period, 20 navigation sets will be installed between Mandalay and Innwa route. Experts from international countries teach us how to install and use these signals,” said Ye Win Ko.

The Ayeyawaddy Integrated Basin Management Project Consultation (AIRBM) will be carried out with World Bank loan of US $ 100 million. The 200 meter long Mandalay-Nyaung U waterway will be implemented by using more than US $ 30 million loan granted by World Bank.
