LÂM ĐỒNG -- The Tây Nguyên (Central Highlands) province of Lâm Đồng’s People’s Committee has launched construction of a ring road in Đà Lạt City.
The project aims to help meet the criteria of a class-1 city as well as relieve traffic congestion downtown, especially during holidays and vacations.
The provincial Department of Transport invested VNĐ800 billion (US$34.9 million) in the project, including VNĐ309 billion ($13.5 million) for land acquisition and clearance, funded by the province’s budget.
The 7.5-kilometre road runs from Prenn Pass - Trúc Lâm Yên Tử Street T-junction to Hoàng Văn Thụ - Nguyễn Đình Quân streets intersection, going through wards of 3, 4, and 5.
It is designed for a speed of 40 km per hour, and is 20 metres wide including a 10m-wide pavement. The project will also include Tia bridge, 37m long and 20m wide.
Construction is expected to be completed in June 2023. — VNS
