The Ben Tre provincial Department of Transport on April 26 launched the construction of six bridges funded by the World Bank and the Australian Government.

The bridges, which will built at a total cost of over 178 billion USD, are located on provincial road 884 that not only links Chau Thanh with Cho Lach (both well-known for their fruits and flowers) but also is the shortest route between Ben Tre and Vinh Long cities .

Once the bridges, with a combined length of 426 metres, are put into use, they will facilitate local people’ travel and goods transport as well as contribute to the economic development and cultural exchange in the province.-VNA
