WORK on the Zalon Taung Ka
Moe bus terminal and resort,
which is being constructed near
the Ka Moe Village in Bamauk
Township of Sagaing Region, will
be completed within two years,
said U Aung Thuya, a consultant
with the Terrain Group Co. Ltd.
“We planned to construct the bus terminal and resort within 24 months. We had a soft opening first because the monsoon is heavy in the region with only a few working days. Currently, vehicles can park at the bus terminal. Travellers can also relax at the resort. In 2018, only 26 per cent of the project was completed,” he said.
“As most pilgrims coming here are from low income groups, we will give priority to the construction of shelters, toilets, and the night market. Thereafter, we will also build hotels and motels catering to the elite crowd,” said U Aung Thuya.
The project, which is being implemented on a 30-acre plot of land, will include a park, a parking area that can accommodate over 200 cars, public toilets, shelters, a night market, hotels, motels, a clinic, security and emergency rescue services, and a fire station. The project will be completed by the end of 2019.
