Port Overview

 

The port of Aunglan consists of a gravel ramp for ferries located in the centre of Aunglan and a passenger mooring point close to it. At both locations there are no jetties or berths, vessels moor at the river bank and use gangways for loading and unloading. Most cargo activity happens across the river at Thayet, which can only be reached by ferry from Aunglan. There is no bridge across the Ayeryawaddy river at Aunglan, but one may start construction in 2017. The closest bridge is at Pyay (65km away).

 

The Directorate of Water Resources and Improvement of River System (DWRIRS) is responsible for daily management of the port of Aunglan and Thayet,

 

The cotton factory, a site with several warehouses (see Aunglan, storage), has an independent ramp with stairs for cargo ships about 1.8km South of the ferry ramp.
