Traffic congestion is a major problem in areas of Myanmar in which multiple shopping centers are located. The completion of a flyover constructed over the Minigone Intersection has helped alleviate chronic traffic congestion in the city of Yangon.
Jinja Bridge, Uganda
The River Nile flows through the Northern Corridor which links Mombasa and Kampala, and the narrowness of the Nalubaale Bridge constructed over a dam was an impediment to the smooth and safe flow of traffic. In this project, we assisted in the construction of a new bridge across the Nile, thus increasing the transport capacity of the Northern Corridor in Uganda and helping ensure traffic safety.
JCM Project in Ulaanbaatar City, Mongolia
Coal accounts for approximately 70% of primary energy consumption in the city of Ulaanbaatar. Based on the experience and know-how in the development of a carbon-free society of Sapporo (a Japanese municipality that has declared the aim of net-zero carbon emissions by the year 2050), in this project, we are providing support mainly in the promotion of energy-reduction technologies in the field of construction for the city of Ulaanbaatar, which, like Sapporo, is also located in a cold region. Additionally, we have shared information about regional heating supply systems and are making recommendations on environmental measurement of indoor air pollution and appropriate energy management.
