THE STRATEGIC urban development plan of greater Yangon will continue step-by-step with a master plan, said Yangon Mayor U Maung Maung Soe.
This comes from the second session of Yangon Region Hluttaw held on 4 November, where a question was raised by Dr Kyaw Zin Oo of Twantay Constituency on the new urban development project, which has been planned for Twantay, Kyimyindaine and Seikkyi Khanaungto townships.
According to the mayor’s reply, the Yangon Region government will continue the development scheme in the target areas through a phase-by-phase approach using a good master plan for the project.
The aim of the plan is to balance a growing population and its urban requirements such as housing, factories, workshops and businesses.
Necessary arrangements will be made by the project implementers to systematically build urban development facilities including offices, shops, schools and transport business in the target area, U Maung Maung Soe said.
Socio-economic development of people living in the commercial city tops the list of government’s priorities, which will ensure easy and smooth flow of commodities between Yangon and Ayeyawady regions.
