A bridge connecting the southern province of Tay Ninh with Cambodia’s Prey Veng across the Vam Co Dong River will open to traffic later this month, according to Tay Ninh provincial Transport Department.

The construction on the 77.28m long bridge began in April last year with a total investment of 44 billion VND (2.1 million USD) sourced from Tay Ninh province’s budget.

The bridge, together with a 1.5 km approaching road, is part of a project to develop cross-border trade at the Tan Nam border gate.

Once operational, the bridge is expected to facilitate the flow of goods and travel between Tay Ninh and the Cambodian provinces of Prey Veng and Kongpong Cham, contributing to the region’s socio-economic development.-VNA
