DONG THAP (VNS) — The Dong Thap Department of Agriculture and Rural Development will spend VND22 billion (US$1 million) from the provincial budget on upgrading the Tran Quoc Toan petrol base depot's main wharf.
A part of the wharf, in Ward 11 in Cao Lanh City, broke on July 5, causing losses of more than VND12 billion ($550,000).
Warning signs were installed in the area and local residents were moved to safer places.
About 400m of the wharf has to be repaired. The upgrade work is expected to be completed in four months.
The Dong Thap Department of Agriculture and Rural Development said after the upgrade work was completed, it would report to the provincial People's Committee and ask for the follow-up plan.
The department will act as an investor, prepare design documents and choose the contractor for the project. — VNS
