Myanmar Port Authorities (MPA) is undertaking the Thilawa deep-sea port expansion project in Myanmar.
The project involves the construction of two cargo wharves. It includes the construction of piers, an administrative facility, access roads and other related facilities.
The MPA received US$205 million loan from the Official Development Assistance (ODA), Japan for the project implementation.
The project was delayed as the Burma’s Lower House of Parliament opposed the project, stating that construction connected to the wharf will create river dunes and cause congestion for cargo ships on the Rangoon River and the project would impair the strength of the pagoda.
Surbana Jurong and Royal Hexagon have been shortlisted as the design consultants. However, the final contract is yet to be signed.
Planning activities are underway. Construction is slated for completion by 2019.
The project involves the expansion of Thilawa port by adding two cargo wharves in Yangon, Myanmar.
The US$200 million project includes the following:
1. Construction of piers
2. Construction of an administrative facility
3. Construction of access roads
