HA NOI (VNS) — Subsidence appearing in nine spots along the Noi Bai – Lao Cai Expressway will be fixed before October 31, as per the directives of Minister of Transport Dinh La Thang.
The nine spots cover a total area of over 90,000sq.m.
Dao Quang Tuan, director of the expressway's Management Board said the contractors had completed fixing eight of the nine spots. The last spot was under repair today, he said.
Tuan said that the expressway's contractors have taken the responsibility for any new subsidence found within 24 months of the expressway having begun operations.
The 245-km expressway was opened in September 2014, and runs through the northern provinces of Vinh Phuc, Phu Tho and Yen Bai before reaching Lao Cai.
It helps shorten travel time from Ha Noi to Lao Cai to three and a half hours from seven. — VNS
