Quang Binh (VNA) – The central province of Quang Binh is planning to spend more than 2.2 trillion VND (95.6 million USD) on completing its coastal road system from now to 2026.
The route, over 85km long and 12m wide, will include 23 bridges, traverse six district-level localities of Quang Binh, and have a design speed of 80km per hour.
Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Tran Thang said the coastal road system is a key and priority project of Quang Binh.
Running through six of the eight district-level localities of Quang Binh , it will help attract investment and tap into local socio-economic development potential and strengths, especially in tourism, services, and sea-based economic activities.
Once put into use, the route will not only connect local coastal economic zones but also help bring into play advantages of the Vung Ang deep-water seaport and industrial park complex in neighbouring Ha Tinh province and Hon La Port of Quang Binh.
It is also expected to contribute to security – defence ensuring, marine sovereignty safeguarding, natural disaster prevention and control, search and rescue, and traffic congestion settlement, Thang noted.
In recent years, Quang Binh has been working hard to develop the local transport system, he said, adding that all the five modes of transport are now available in the province, namely road, rail, air, sea, and inland waterway transport./.
