KOKKINE flyover along Kabar Aye Pagoda Road was commissioned into service yesterday, ahead of schedule.
However, finishing touches will continue to be carried out on the flyover, while traffic continues alongside.
The opening of the overpass has eased traffic congestion on the road, according to a driver who used the flyover yesterday.
The opening of the flyover will provide a safer environment to the students at the No. 1 Basic Education Primary School at Kokkine Junction, said a teacher from the school.
Meanwhile, another flyover at 8-Mile Junction is expected to open soon. The flyover has been constructed by the Capital Development Construction company since September, last year and 13.97 billion kyats was spent for the project. It is a four lane re-inforced concrete structure. Its total length is 505-m and can withstand 75 tons of loads.
The Region Government has planned to construct flyovers at the traffic junctions to relieve congestion and flyovers at Hledan, Bayint Naung, Shwe Gone Taing, Myay Ni Gone, Tarmwe, 8 mile junction and Kokkine  were constructed during the term of  current government with over 136 billion kyats.
Kokkine flyover will be officially inaugurated on Feb 10th. —SNOW
