HCMC – Work on a road connecting the provinces of An Giang and Dong Thap got off the ground on September 24 with an estimated cost of nearly VND500 billion from the central and provincial budgets.
The road is designed to start at Provincial Highway 946, with its branch leading to Vam Cong-Hoa An Bridge in Dong Thap, and ends at Nguyen Huu Canh Street in Cho Moi District of An Giang Province.
The road has a total length of over 27 kilometers and a width of 11 meters, with its branches being 3.5 kilometers long. The section crossing Cho Moi District will be 16 meters wide.
According to the local authority, the project will be constructed within 24 months from the end of September this year, using the state and provincial budgets.
The three main contractors of the project comprise the Hai Duong Rural Development and Dike Stone Construction JSC, the 319 Corporation Ministry of National Defence, and the Vietnam Construction JSC No. 12.
Upon its completion, the road will help ease traffic on Provincial Highway 946, the main route connecting Long Xuyen City and Cho Moi District, said Nguyen Thi Minh Thuy, Vice Chairman of the An Giang People’s Committee.
Moreover, the road will shorten the journey from An Giang to Dong Thap and facilitate interprovincial transportation and connection.
