Quang Nam (VNA) – The Vietnam Expressway Corporation (VEC) has pledged to speed up the implementation of the expressway linking central Da Nang city with Quang Ngai province.

The VEC will complete components funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the World Bank (WB), so that several sections of the expressway will be open to traffic at the end of 2016, said General Director Mai Tuan Anh.

The company is committed to promptly supplying financial resources for contractors to deal with any arising problems during the implementation of the project.

Meanwhile, the management board of the project will actively work with local authorities to deal with land clearance and compensation, and create all favourable conditions for the contractors to complete the project by 2018.

The construction of the Da Nang – Quang Ngai Expressway commenced in 2013 with a total investment of nearly 1.7 billion USD.

The 140-km expressway has significant meaning in promoting social-economic development and national defence-security in the central region, once it is put into operation.

It also enables international transportation between Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam through the East-West corridor to a number of seaports in central Vietnam.-VNA
