Strand Road, Yangon
Strand Road (Burmese: ကမ်းနားလမ်း, pronounced: [káɴná láɴ]) is a major road in downtown Yangon, Burma. It crosses the city in a west-east direction and runs parallel to the Yangon River. It contains many important government buildings, including the Ministry of Trade building, court and the British embassy. It also contains the 5-star hotel, Strand Hotel, built in 1901.
In 2011, Asia World partnered with the Yangon City Development Committee to upgrade Strand Road. This redevelopment project to expand the number of lanes (as well as construct a dual-track railway line) on 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) of Strand Road, stretching from Botahtaung Township to Kyeemyindaing Townships, will require the demolition of 182 buildings, including apartment buildings, government offices and warehouses.
