YANGON City Development Committee plans to open a night market along 52nd Street in downtown Yangon in the second week of this month, its spokesperson said.
For the purpose of public interest and reducing traffic congestions, authorities will arrange to open stalls in a night market. They are now negotiating with Hluttaw representatives from respective townships to move the vendors to the new night market.
An official of the YCDC said that the committee has not yet set the exact date to launch the night market. They are putting forth continuous efforts to implement the project as quickly as possible.
The new night market will have approximately 130 stalls. Select vendors selling products along the downtown streets including Anawrahta Road, MahaBandoola Road, Botahtaung Pagoda Road and Bo Myat Tun Road will be invited to open up stalls in the new night market.
The YCDC has already compiled a list of street hawkers.
