Binh Thuan (VNA) – The southern province of Binh Thuan has decided to launch a project to upgrade a road linking its capital city of Phan Thiet to Ham Tien-Mui Ne area at a cost of 286 billion VND (12.8 million USD), aiming to boost its tourism.

The road, which is 4km in length and 25m in width with 3m-wide pavement, is the only one connecting Phan Thiet and the area, which is also known as the “capital of resort,” as well as coastal roads to urban areas and tourist destinations in the north of the province.

It is also the main road from Phan Thiet airport to Binh Thuan’s downtown when the airport becomes operational.

Currently, the road is in bad condition, with its surface width of only 6m, leading to frequent traffic congestion.

Under the project, the 131m Phu Hai bridge, part of the road, will also be upgraded.

According to Pham Van Nam, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, the province is calling for bids for the project.-VNA
