Work on upgrades of a 76.44-km section of National Highway 1A that runs through Cam Xuyen and Ky Anh districts in the central province of Ha Tinh resumed on February 6 after the Lunar New Year (Tet) holidays.
The project was launched on September 5, 2013, with the Ha Tinh provincial Department of Transport, the Traffic Safety Project Management Board and the Project No.6 Management Board of the Transport Ministry, as the major investors.

At the ceremony, the investors, constructors and supervisors committed to speeding up the project’s tempo, striving to complete it in December this year.

The same day, all businesses and units involved in upgrading a section of National Highway 1A running though the central province of Quang Binh also returned to work.

The work on the 144-km stretch needs a total investment of more than 6.9 trillion VND (324.3 million USD).

The North-South highway, which is of significant importance to the country’s socio-economic development and national defence, has seriously deteriorated in recent years, leading to severe traffic congestion and accidents.-VNA
