Quang Nam (VNA) – The central province of Quang Nam has spent more than 550 billion VND (over 24.2 million USD) on constructing 10.5 km of road to connect the locality’s coastal belt road with National Road 40B and the Da Nang-Quang Ngai expressway.

The road, named Dien Bien Phu, will go through An Xuan, An My, Tan Thanh, An Phu and Tam Phu wards of Tam Ky city and Tam Dai commune of Phu Ninh district.

It is scheduled to open to traffic in 2018, connecting traffic networks in Tam Ky and Phu Ninh with national roads and expressways, and facilitating rescue activities in the rainy season and in incidents caused by climate change in eastern coastal areas.

The road is also expected to contribute to meeting the sustainable development and modernisation targets of the locality, especially Tam Ky city.-VNA
