HCM CITY — For more than a month now, massive potholes have scarred the National Highway 1A stretch from 621 Junction in Thu Duc District in HCM City to the Dong Nai Bridge, a traffic management official said.
Le Ngoc Hung, deputy general director of the Urban Area Traffic Management No 2, said they had been caused by giant trucks.
The road, especially the stretch near the Tan Van T-junction, had sunk by 5-10cm, he said, causing potholes stretching tens of metres.
The Dong Nai Material and Building Investment JSC, which is responsible for the maintenance of the highway, said it had instructed the Construction Corporation No 1 to repair it this month. — VNS
