HÀ NỘI — The Hải Phòng Port Joint Stock Company has called on the Việt Nam National Shipping Lines and local authorities to build a road inside Lạch Huyện Port in Hải Phòng City to improve connectivity.

The chairman of the company, Phùng Xuân Hà, told on Tuesday that two out of four docks in Lạch Huyện Port have been operational since May last year and a road has been built to facilitate transport of goods.

He said construction of the remaining two docks is expected to be finished in the second quarter of 2021, and they could handle ships of up to 100,000 DTW.

“It is necessary to build a road to access the docks as soon as they start operation.”

It would cost around VNĐ1 trillion (US$42.8 million), he added.

The Hà Nội-Hải Phòng expressway, the Tân Vũ-Lạch Huyện road and the city ring road and the Đình Vũ Bridge are some of the infrastructure works put in place to facilitate cargo transport to the port. — VNS
