3 Introduction The transport services in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar consist of four modes:- Railways Road Water Air Railways transport services in monopolized by state own transport enterprise

4 Brief History The first railway line in Myanmar, between Yangon and Pyay, 161 miles apart, was opened on 1 st of May After 137 years, Myanma Railways is still serving its duty of transport for Myanmar people. 4

5 Located at the cross roads between East and West, North and South of Asia continent as a natural link between the Asian countries. Land-bridge connecting Southeast Asia and South Asia as well as with China. Potential to be a regional hub offering its geographical advantages to neighboring countries to make maximum use. Beneficial transport linkages across the region. Actively participating in the international cooperation. Trying to upgrade and develop transport with her own resources and with an inter agreements with neighboring countries

6 Transport sector in Myanmar is concerned with the following Government Ministries and Committees:- The Ministry of Construction for construction and maintenance of national roads and bridges The Ministry of Rail Transportation for land and rail transport The Ministry of Transport for maritime and air transport The Ministry of Home Affair for Traffic Police Force The Ministry of Border Affairs for construction of roads and bridges in border areas Yangon and Mandalay City Development Committees construction, maintenance and development of urban transport

11 Total length 4534 km.

12 Current status of Asian and ASEAN highway in Myanmar

13 The Intergovernmental Agreement on the Asian Highway Network entered into force in July 2005 and Myanmar had already signed. Ongoing project of Asian Highway in Myanmar as follows:- Upgrading of Myawaddy-Kawkareik road (AH1) Upgrading of Kawkareik-Eindu road (AH1) Upgrading of Kalewa-Tamu road (AH1, AH2) Upgrading of Yagyi-Kalewa road (AH1, AH2) New border link Maesot Myawaddy between Myanmar and Thailand (AH1)

15 Trans-Asian Railway Network Mandalay-Yangon Mandalay-Lashio [ Muse (border station and break of gauge)-rueli(china)] Kalay-[ Tamu (border station and break of gauge)-jiribam (India)] Bago-Thanpyuzayat [Three Pagoda Pass- Namtok (Thailand)] Thanpyuzayat-Ye Yangon (maritime connection) Thanphyuzayat Namtok

16 Railway Lines of International Importance in Myanmar Existing lines Mandalay-Yangon = 617 km Mandalay-Lashio = 313 km Mandalay-Kalay = 539 km Bago-Thanbyuzayat-Dawei = 520 km Missing lines Kalay-Tamu = km** Lashio-Rueli = km** Thanbyuzayat-Three Pagoda Pass = 110 km** ** The route lengths of missing lines are referred from feasibility reports

17 Missing link between Myanmar and India * Comparison of transport between Yangon & New Delhi Without Project With Project Transit time 22 days 9 days per TEU cost 2000 USD 800 USD * Conducted by RITES Ltd * The scope of the study New rail link (i) Jiribam-Moreh (219 kms) India (ii) Tamu-Kalay (127.4 kms) Myanmar Rehabilitation of existing line Kalay-Mandalay (513 kms) Myanmar * The construction cost of the project # Tamu-Kalay mil USD. (new line) # Kalay-Mandalay 162 mil USD. (Rehabilitation) * Freight Demand Forecast 2.48 mil tons in * The Financial Analysis Jiribam-Moreh (-) 1.7% Tamu-Kalay (-) 1.2% Combined (-) 1.3% Under optimistic scenario, FIRR could improve to (-) 0.6%

18 Missing link between Myanmar and China Joint Survey of MR and CREC: conducted in 2011 July to September. Memorundem of Understanding signed 2 nd December 2011, 1 st Extention in 2013 July Feasibility Study Report submitted by CREC in 2012 April. * Route Description length (ballast track mile + ballast less track mile, Total ( 540 miles) 79 stations, 409 nos of bridges, 101 nos. of tunnels, Standard gauge (60kg/m rail continous welded track Single line Maximum speed ( kmph.)

19 Missing link between Myanmar and Thailand * Conducted by KOICA * The scope of the study # Thanbyuzayat-Three Pagoda Pass (110 km) (Myanmar) # Three Pagoda Pass-NamTok ( 153 km) (Thailand) * The construction cost for Myanmar side mil USD. Originally, in the Singapore-Kunming Rail Link, Myanmar involves in the missing line of Thanbyuzayat- Three Pagoda Pass that must be connected to Namtok, Thailand. At present, Dawei - Kanchanaburi is considered to be new spur line instead of old line Three Pagoda Pass - Namtok.

20 Regarding the signing of the TAR Agreement, what we feel is that we have technical and financial constraints to upgrade the existing railway line in conformity with the guiding principles for technical character eristic of TAR network. Actually moving dimensions, axle-load, signaling and operating conditions are very poor and too far from the specification of TAR standards. Though the whole network is necessary to be reconstructed, it is not within our reach at the moment due to our economical constraints. That is the main reason why we cannot sign the Intergovernmental Agreement for TAR. Myanma Railways needs sufficient time and large amount of financial supports to upgrade the whole railway network.

21 DRY PORTS OF INTERNATIONAL IMPORTANT IN MYANMAR Myanmar proposed eight potential locations for dry ports in Myanmar at the meeting of Ad hoc Intergovernmental Meeting on an Intergovernmental Agreement on Dry Port held in Bangkok during 20 to 22 June 2012 and signed the Intergovernmental Agreement on Dry Ports at the Forum of Asian Ministers of Transport held in Bangkok, Thailand on November 7, The potential dry port locations in Myanmar are in Yangon, Mandalay, Tamu, Muse, Mawlamyine, Bago, Monywa and Pyay. They would be along the Asian Highway and Trans-Asia Railways Line in Myanmar s transport network. The dry ports in Mandalay and Yangon are to be primarily implemented. There will be the international tender process for towards construction and the operation of dry port at Ywathagyi (Yangon) and Myitnge (Mandalay) in August

22 Myanma Railways plans to develop a new potential dry port in the area of Ywarthargyi in Yangon Division. Ywarthargyi Thilawa SEZ

23 Myanma Railways plans to develop a new potential dry port in the area of Myitnge in Mandalay Division. Myitnge

24 Regional Cooperation of Myanma Railways Myanmar is now conducting the process related to the "Memorandum of Understanding for the Establishment of the Greater Mekong Railway Association" to be signed at the 19 th GMS Ministerial Meeting which will be held in Vientiane, Lao PDR on 10 th and 11 st December In order to implement the ASEAN Transport Action Plan (ATAP), Myanmar signed the protocol (6): Railway Border and Interchanging Stations under the ASEAN Frame Work Agreement on the Facilitation of Goods in Transit in December 2011, and then "Myanmar has sent the Instrument of Ratification for the Protocol (6) to the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta on February 3 rd 2014."
