HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam General Department of Roads (VNGDR) will set up a hotline to receive complaints and information from road users nationwide.
Information on damaged roads will be welcomed, the department said. Provincial and municipal transport departments will be responsible for spreading the hotline number in their area.
Close co-ordination between relevant sectors is needed to manage roads nationwide, according to the department, because of increasing road-use.
The general department recently co-ordinated with provincial and municipal transport departments and maintain highways and local roads.
The VNGDR asked transport departments for annual reports on road infrastructure in each area.
Local transport departments should promptly announce the weight and allowed size on bridges, roads, ferries and floating bridges, VNGDR reported.
Degraded floating bridges must be closely monitored and repairs carried out promptly to ensure safety.— VNS
