The Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta city of Cần Thơ will build an additional 30-metre stretch of embankment at a site of erosion along the Trà Nóc River in Bình Thủy District.
The Cà Mau Province People’s Committee has petitioned the Government to provide nearly VNĐ29 billion (US$1.25 million) to build three erosion-prevention projects to prevent the western sea dyke from collapsing.
The 10-kilometre Nhiêu Lộc-Thị Nghè Canal running through districts 1, 3, Tân Bình, Phú Nhuận, and Bình Thạnh in HCM City has become a popular place for sightseeing, taking photos and doing exercises.
Construction on many traffic infrastructure projects is running behind schedule due to an inefficient land clearance process.
Many sections of the western sea dyke in Cà Mau and Kiên Giang provinces in the Cửu Long (Mekong) Delta have seriously eroded and could collapse at any time if prompt protective measures are not taken.
The southernmost province of Cà Mau has taken measures to protect its western 108 km long sea dyke that is in danger of collapsing because of erosion, according to the province’s Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control, Search and Rescue.
