HCMC – The Department for Roads of Vietnam has approved a VND66.5 billion project to repair National Highway 15D which links Vietnam’s Quang Tri Province and Laos.

The project will help accommodate the increasing number of vehicles on the road and facilitate the transportation of coal from Laos.

The Quang Tri Department of Transport said that the upgrade of the 12.2-km National Highway 15D, running through Dakrong Province, will commence this year. The project includes repairing road infrastructure and water drainage along the road.

In 2023, the Department for Roads of Vietnam allocated over VND26 billion to repair and renovate some segments of the road to improve traffic safety.

Despite frequent upgrades and repairs, National Highway 15D is continuing to deteriorate due to the rising traffic volume and unfavorable terrain.

National Highway 15D starts at the intersection with Ho Chi Minh Road and ends at the La Lay international border gate. This road is the sole link between Salavan District in Laos and Dakrong District in Quang Tri Province.
