QUẢNG NAM — The central province of Quảng Nam, in co-operation with local car firm Trường Hải, commenced construction of a railway flyover roundabout at one of the busiest crossroads on National Highway No 1A, in Núi Thành District, and a road linking Chu Lai Port to Đà Nẵng-Quảng Ngãi Expressway.
The flyover, invested in by Trường Hải to the tune of VNĐ600 billion (US$26.5 million), will be a key project to reduce traffic at the crossroad of the national highway and north-south railway system as well as on the route from the Chu Lai Port and Chu Lai-Trường Hải Industrial Complex to the expressway.
It is scheduled to open to traffic this August.
The flyover will allow non-stop travel on the national highway and hasten transportation of cargo from the seaport to the road system and Chu Lai Airport.
A pedestrian bridge will be built to create a safe way to cross the railway system.
Minister of Transport Nguyễn Văn Thể said the project will play a crucial role in providing safe transport for all vehicles at the busy road-railway crossing.
He said the flyover will be a symbol of Quảng Nam Province, and it will help speed up travel to roads, railways, seaports and airports from Chu Lai Open Economic Zone.
The ministry also approved eight flyover bridges in flood-affected areas in Quảng Nam Province, Thể added.
Chairman of Trường Hải company Trần Bá Dương said the project will be a challenge for construction companies and workers with its strict construction schedule.
He said the company will work to complete the project on schedule to mark the 15th anniversary of the foundation of the Chu Lai Open Economic Zone.
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. — VNS
