Myanma Railways will have separate railroads for Yangon city circular trains and highway ones, said an official from Myanma Railways.
Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) will provide both technical and financial assistance for upgrading the railway system.
In 2016, Japan provided a low-interest loan of 25 billion yen (Ks310.25 billion) for improving the Yangon City circular train. Currently, Myanma Railways is constructing brick walls and installing signal system at railway crossings.
Myanma Railways also invited tenders for implementation of 10 projects including upgrading of Yangon circular railway.
