Nay Pyi Taw: Myanmar will launch a tram service, the first in the country since this kind of transportation was launched in 1904, an official report said on Wednesday. The move will ease traffic congestion and provide commuters with convenient public transportation, Xinhua reported.
The 150-seater tram rail will run on the Strand Road route 10 times a day from 7.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. The 11-km tram rail line will have three phases, but only a 6.44 km route will be launched initially.
Myanmar Railway and Japanese West Corporation signed an agreement for the project in July.
