Can Tho (VNA) – The Thoi Thuan –Thanh Loc road, running through the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho’s Thot Not district and Vinh Thanh commune, was put into use on January 12.

The road construction began in 2012 at a total cost of over 12 million USD, which was partly sourced from a World Bank loan and the Australian Government’s non-refundable aid programme.

Being 7 km long and 6.5 m wide, the road is capable of handling vehicles weighed up to ten tonnes.

Currently, Can Tho’s road transport system is more than 2,700 km in length, including 123 km of expressways, 150 km of urban roads and nearly 2,000 km of rural roads.-VNA
