CAN THO (VNS) — Southern city Can Tho will move all of the information and electrical cable system in residential quarters, industrial zones, and new roads underground by 2020.

Director of the Can Tho Department of Information and Communications Do Hoang Trung said this during a meeting with the municipal People's Committee yesterday.

Over the past years, the city moved cable networks on 26 roads, stretching 72km, underground. The work enhanced the appearance of the city.

The city will continue moving cable networks underground until 2020 to ensure traffic safety and limit the technological breakdown of electricity and information transmission, said Trung.

Trung has proposed to move cable networks on some main roads, including Hai Ba Trung Road and Hoa Binh Boulevard, underground.

Chairman of the Can Tho People's Committee Le Hung Dung has asked telecommunications and electrical enterprises to join hands with the department to move cable systems underground.

The work must ensure safety and should not affect residents' health and lives, he stressed. — VNS
