QUẢNG NAM — The central province of Quảng Nam plans to build a railway flyover at one of the busiest crossroads on National Highway No 1A, in Núi Thành District.
Head of the provincial Secretariat, Nguyễn Hồng Quang, told Việt Nam News that the province will submit a detailed project plan to the Transport Ministry soon.
Work on the VNĐ600 billion (US$26.5 million) flyover could start later this year and open to traffic next year, he said.
The flyover will help ease heavy congestion at the intersection of the North-South Highway No 1A, railway line, Tam Hiệp Port and the Chu Lai-Trường Hải Industrial Complex.
The crossroad section is used by more than 9,000 workers and vehicles from the Chu Lai-Trường Hải Industrial Complex as well as numerous vehicles that traverse the national highway and railway systems.
Quảng Nam also plans to upgrade National Highway No 40B that links its Tam Kỳ City to Tắc Pỏ in Nam Trà My district even as it builds key routes linking strategic economic zones, ports and airports in the central and Central Highlands regions.
It completed the upgrade and expansion of a 27.7-km section of National Highway 1A in 2015. — VNS
