By 2040, improved accessibility will see Hlegu as a potential to gateway into Yangon from Naypyidaw and Mandalay. A potential green and recreational link could develop from the Hlwaga protected area to the site. Its low propensity to flood compared to other areas provides opportunity for Hlegu to be utilised as a recreational area. In addition, public transportation networks currently under development from Hlegu and Yangon will strengthen this linkage and encourage growth across the YCDC’s boundaries. Diligent masterplanning has retained hills to reduce earthwork, while aligning similar natural elevations to minimise slope runs and ensure soil stabilisation.
