Seven bridges in the Mekong Delta province of An Giang became operational on February 7 after seven months of construction.

The structures, part of Highway 91, were built through a loan worth 180 billion VND (8.4 million USD) from the Japan International Cooperation Agency.

Each bridge is 8 metres wide, the longest of which is 50 metres.

Highway 91 plays a prominent role in the flow of commodities from Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta region to Cambodia, generating roughly 1 million USD in export revenue annually.

The improved flow of traffic across the bridges is expected to boost tourism and ease regional traffic.-VNA
