KON TUM – The Ministry of Transport has agreed on four urgent solutions to reduce road accidents on the Lò Xo Pass of the Hồ Chí Minh Trail.
The Central Highlands province of Kon Tum People’s Committee announced the decision on Wednesday, with the work to include an upgrade to the road surface and infrastructure on the pass and co-ordinating with local forces to intensify traffic patrols.
In addition, traffic order and safety violators will be fined and some dangerous road or slope sections will be rebuilt.
Previously, to limit traffic accidents on the Hồ Chí Minh Trail, the Kon Tum Province People’s Committee asked the Ministry of Transport to consider upgrading the road surface and the traffic safety system at Lò Xo Pass, and the water drainage system of the trail’s section in Đăk Glei District.
As part of the first solution, the Việt Nam Road Administration is currently installing speed-limit signs, surveillance cameras, road paint, and protective barriers.— VNS
