VĨNH PHÚC — Northern Vĩnh Phúc Province plans to invest VNĐ190 billion (US$7.14 million) to upgrade old bridges and build new ones crossing 34 canals.
The project is aimed at gradually completing the provincial transport system, contributing to ensuring safety for people and vehicles, according to local authorities.
It is also expected to help contribute to the province’s agricultural and rural mechanisation efforts, creating better conditions for farmers to transport equipment and machinery for agricultural production.
The bridges cross canals in Lập Thạch, Tam Dương, Vĩnh Tường and Bình Xuyên districts.
Around 22 bridges which are narrow and deteriorated will be upgraded.
The investment capital will be earmarked from the provincial budget.
The project is expected to be completed in 2023. — VNS
