HÀ NỘI — A new road linking the northern province of Thái Nguyên and the mountain province of Bắc Kạn has been opened to traffic, shortening the trip from Hà Nội northward to Bắc Kạn from four to two hours using National Highway 3.

Construction of the new road lasted over two years and it runs through complicated terrain, some mountainous. More than one million cubic metres of soil and rock were dug up and over 700,000 cu.m of soil were embanked to build the road.

According to Việt Nam’s highway development plan to 2020, the Hà Nội–Thái Nguyên–Bắc Kạn highway, stretching 90 kms, is one of seven major highways leading to the country’s capital. — VNS
