Muong Thanh Bridge, a historical relic site that witnessed the victorious battle of Dien Bien Phu, is gradually deteriorating. As such, the local tourism sector has been upgrading the bridge in preparation for the 65th victory anniversary celebrations next year.

Muong Thanh Bridge spans over Nam Rom River. This historical relic site once  witnessed the monumental victory of Dien Bien Phu in its past. Nowadays, it has become a tourism destination in Dien Bien province. However, over the years, the bridge’s condition has been rapidly deteriorating, badly in need of repair. 

The repair and upgrade of the bridge is projected to be completed by next January. The initial structural design is to be kept intact. 

The upgrade costs nearly 129,000 USD and is part of preparations for celebrating the 65th anniversary of the Dien Bien Phu victory on May 7 next year.–VNA
