PHU YEN — The Tuy Hoa City People's Committee is expected to complete a new port today, about 80m from the present Da Dien Seaport.
The new port has been constructed to help local seamen prevent large ships from running aground.
Nearly 600 fishing ships enter and leave the Da Dien Seaport every day. The tuna-fishing ships are from Phu Dong Ward and Ward 6. However, there is a serious problem of the Da Dien Seaport being clogged with silt, which prevented nearly 350 ships from going out to sea during the past two weeks and caused huge losses to local seamen.
At the urging of the seamen, the local authorities decided to set up the new port, so that the fishing boats can go out to sea.
The new port is 40m long, 30m wide and 2m deep. — VNS
