Ca Mau city of the Mekong Delta province of Ca Mau will invest nearly 500 billion VND (23.5 million USD) to construct significant transport facilities between 2014 and 2016 to upgrade its urban infrastructure.

Accordingly, the city will construct the Nguyen Trai-Lam Thanh Mau section of Ring Road 1 and another section connecting Hung Vuong Street with roads 6A and 6B.

The investment will also be used to broaden a section of Truong Phung Xuan Street and build the sewerage system of Thong Nhat (Reunification) canal and a bridge over Tac Thu River.

In addition, the locality will reorder the planning of night market areas and others to facilitate local people’s consumption on the occasion of the upcoming Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday.

Chairman of the Ca Mau city People’s Committee Ho Trung Viet said the works will help to gradually perfect urban infrastructure in the city and create a foundation for local socio-economic development.-VNA
