YANGON, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar planned to implement a sky train project in the commercial city of Yangon starting 2020, according to the Ministry of Transport and Communications Monday.

The over 1-billion-U.S. dollar project, which includes 13 stations, is expected to be completed by 2027.

The project, which is also called the Yangon Urban Mass Rapid Transit, will connect the eastern and western parts of Yangon.

The 18-km sky train project will start from Hlaingthaya township Station, run along the Yangon-Pathein road, cross over Hlaing River in the south of Bayinnaung Bridge and then run from Okkyin Station along the Parami Road before reaching Tokyaung Kalay Station.

The sky train is claimed to be based on standard models of Thailand and Indonesia. Enditem
