QUANG NAM (VNS) — The ancient city of Hoi An in the central province of Quang Nam will construct a waste water treatment station to improve the channel running through the Japanese Bridge, one of the most visited site in the tourism hub, this November.
Vice Chairman of the city's People's Committee, Truong Van Bay, said the project, with an investment of VND244 billion (US$11.6 million) from a non-refundable loan from Japan and Viet Nam's government, will collect and clean 2,000 cubic metres of waste water before pumping it into the Hoai River.
The city has also planned a 1.6ha tourism information reception centre on Le Hong Phong Street with a parking area and toilet stop for tourists, with investment of VND7 billion ($333,000).
He said the city would also upgrade four public toilets in the old town for tourists and local people. — VNS
