Roads
    Public Works is constructing new roads and upgrading and minataining the existing ones year by year with accelerating momentum. There is a marked increase of 3489 miles of roads from 14753 miles of roads in 1988, to 18242 miles in July 2001.
human08      Previously, roads were constructed north to south along the geographical orientation of the mountain ranges and rivers in Myanmar. As it was difficult and very costly to construct long-span bridges, roads were being conducted along the natural course, avoiding most of the river crossings wherever possible. There were also 11 roads of 2452 miles designated as the Union Highway maintained by the Mnistry of Construction. Today east to west horizontal highways are being added to the existing north to south vertical highways to form a road network system of Union Highways. Thirty-five horizontal highways of 9450 miles and 45 vertical highways of .5692 miles making a total of 80 highways of 15142 miles were designated as the Union Highways by proclamation 5/84 of the Special Projects Implementation Committee convened on the 14 December 1994.
     Roads are being upgraded in stages from earth roads to metal roads and bitumen roads and these are further upgraded successively from single lane to double lane, four-lane and six-lane roads. For a rapid and smooth flow of goods and commodities through the establishment of a secure and smooth transportation system, existing bitumen roads are being upgraded to double lane, four-lane and six-lane roads.
     Public works is undertaking the bitemen overlaying works as per yearly annual budget allotments and has completed 581 miles in 1994-95, 452.25 miles of new roads in 1995-96, 896.3 miles of new roads in 1996-97, 373.1 miles of new roads in 1997-98 and 329.45 miles of new road in 1998-99.
