Construction of the Tan Nam-Mon Chay Bridge, linking border areas between Vietnam and Cambodia, is expected to be completed in April 204.

The bridge, connecting southwestern Tay Ninh province and Cambodia’s Prey Veng and Kampong Cham provinces, took shape in April 2013 with a total investment of 44 billion VND (2.2 million USD) sourced from Tay Ninh’s budget.

The whole project includes the bridge - 77.28 metres long and 8 metres wide - and a 1.5 kilometre section of road connecting the border belt.

Once operational, the bridge is expected to encourage cross-border trade between people along the border, contributing to the region’s economic development and cultural growth, as well as maintaining security and defence in the area.-VNA
