A bamboo dyke is being built in the central province of Quang Ngai to prevent coast erosion and landslides on the northern bank of Cua Dai estuary.

Locals in Co Luy hamlet, Tinh Khe commune, Son Tinh district, have joined hands to build the over-500-meter dyke.

The Truong Phat Loc Company has also helped them build a 200-meter-rock dyke.

The work is expected to complete by the end of November with a total cost of 5 billion VND (250,000 USD).-VNA
