HCMC – Binh Thuan Province on November 25, broke ground on two tourism-related coastal road projects, with a total cost of approximately VND1.6 trillion.
The Ke Ga-Phan Thiet road project will be newly built at a total cost of some VND1 trillion, running through Tien Thanh Commune in Phan Thiet City and Ham Thuan Nam District. The road will be 25 kilometers long and 16 meters wide, VnExpress news site reported.
Another coastal road which is the current Ke Ga-Tan Thien, will be widened and upgraded, running through Tan Thanh and Tan Thuan communes in Ham Thuan Nam District and six wards in La Gi Town. The 32-kilometer-long coastal road requires VND600 billion for completion.
Nguyen Tan Le, a representative of the Binh Thuan Department of Transport, said that funding for the two projects would be sourced from the central and local budgets and would be completed by 2023.
The two coastal roads are expected to contribute to socio-economic development, to perfect the traffic network in Binh Thuan Province, and to improve the connection with resorts and tourist destinations there, Le said. Apart from this, after the Dau Giay-Phan Thiet expressway is completed, the projected Ke Ga-Phan Thiet road will act as a link to coastal resorts and urban areas in the south of Binh Thuan Province and help ease traffic jams.
The two projects were passed by the Binh Thuan People’s Council at an extraordinary meeting on May 8.
