Once the conversion is complete, the maximum train speeds will be 56 km/h (35 mph).
Mr U Tun Aung Thin, General Managers for Obermyanmar at Myanmar Railways, said the work will be finalised before the end of March. "He said, "The extraordinary program will be concluded this fiscal year. "When all the repairs are complete, there will be fewer crashes, the train will run punctually on a regular basis and we can increase the cruise control so that passengers can conserve their time," he said.
As part of the contract, wood ties will be replaced by cement and more gravel will be installed under the almost 500 km long railroad. Since 1995, the German authorities have progressively replaced timber ties in the country's railways. It will also expand four locations in the Mandalay region, 34 locations in the Sagaing region and 33 locations in the state of Kachin.
Aung Thin said it was a real challange to find enough employees for the work. Kanbalu tell Ko Phoe Aye from Sagaing's Kanbalu V.T. that the workmen were receiving K3000 per person and dily.
