QUANG NAM (VNS) — Compensation worth VND830 million (US$38,400) was paid to 110 households in Chiem Son Ward, Duy Xuyen District in Quang Nam Province who were affected during the construction of the Da Nang-Quang Ngai Highway yesterday.
Construction of a mountain tunnel, part of the highway project, started in 2014 and used explosives to blast through the mountain. The explosions were reported to have caused damage to local residents' houses.
Work on the tunnel was interrupted in May after residents complained about the damage to their houses. — VNS
