Tay Ninh to build border bridge with Cambodia
TAY NINH – Southern Tay Ninh Province is to build a border bridge over the Vam Co Dong River, linking Viet Nam with the Cambodia border.
The Mon Chay bridge was to be located at Marker 131, connecting Tan Bien district with Cambodian Prey Veng Province, about 120km east of Phnom Penh City.
People's Committee chairwoman Nguyen Thi Thu Thuy told an online meeting of border districts on Tuesday the bridge would boost trade between the countries.
Districts in the online link were Tan Bien, Tan Chau and Chau Thanh.
Tay Ninh Department of Transport calculated a concrete bridge would cost VND20 billion ($850,000) and a connecting road would cost the same amount.
Thuy said a border market was being built in Tan Phu commune, on road 791, about 10km from the bridge, to facilitate trading. – VNS
