Update: April, 16/2012 - 09:44

PHU THO — Construction to improve waterway transport in the northern delta started in Viet Tri city, Phu Tho Province, yesterday.

This is part of the greater WB6 project, which is expected to cost more than US$201.5 million, with the World Bank providing a loan of $171 million and the balance coming from the Vietnamese Government.

The first phrase will upgrade waterway corridors at Viet Tri - Ha Noi - Quang Ninh and the second phrase will build a breakwater and canal at the Lach Giang estuary while upgrading the Viet Tri, Ninh Binh - Ninh Phuc river ports and 28 river ferries, among others.

Construction of both phrases are expected to complete in 2014.— VNS
