A total of five villages near the Dawei Deep Seaport Project in Myanmar’s southernmost region Tanintharyi will be relocated soon to a new town called Bawar.
Bawar, located at 10 miles north of the deep seaport project, is currently under construction and 70 per cent of the work is completed.
The new town will have a total of 1,899 houses to accommodate the households of the five villages.
The houses will have different classes and prices based on types, facilities and locations. An average price for a house is about 20 million kyats (US$23,529).
At least 10 construction companies including local companies from Dawei District are involved in the construction of the housing projects.
To complete the projects in time, some contractors are working seven days a week.
Bawar will also have schools, clinics, market and other facilities.
