No More Strolling Along Goteik Viaduct in Shan State

The Irrawaddy – 15. Dezember 2015

RANGOON — Authorities are clamping down on a restriction that prohibits walking along the Goteik Viaduct in Shan State’s Nawnghkio Township, a ban already in place for the landmark railway trestle that was not previously enforced, according to Aye Maung, an assistant general manager with the state-owned Myanmar Railways. “In fact, walking has never been allowed on the viaduct. Despite the warning notices, people walk on the viaduct. We are warning because of the danger of falling off it,” Aye Maung told The Irrawaddy.
