Yangon, 8 July —  Construction of a metrological radar station in Yangon is now one-third complete, an official involved with the project said Wednesday.
The octagonal station, which will eventually stand over 75 metres tall, is located on Kaba Aye Pagoda road.
Senior project engineer U San Hlaing said, “Construction has been completed up to the sixth floor and the steel structures are being installed at the seventh floor.”
The station is one of three under construction with US $38.7 million in funding from the Japan International Cooperation Agency. The other two stations, in Kyaukpyu, Rakhine State, and in Mandalay are expected to be completed in 2016 and 2017, respectively.—GNLM
