Dak Nong (VNA) – Construction on a concrete bridge started on May 30 to replace the old wooden bridge in Bon Jang Plei 2, Truong Xuan commune, Dak Song district in the Central Highlands province of Dak Nong.

It is one of eight bridges that need replaced in the district.

The 2.1 billion VND (92,442 USD) bridge is part of a project to replace 59 temporary bridges in Dak Nong province approved by Ministry of Transport in 2016 with loans from the World Bank.

The new bridge, which is 22 metres long and 3.5 metres wide, is expected to be completed in June 2017.

New bridges in Dak Nong are expected to help people in remote and ethnic minority-inhabited areas more easily commute and carry out daily activities.-VNA
