Ground broken on coastal road connecting Hai Phong, Thai Binh

A groundbreaking ceremony has recently been held in Hai Phong for the construction of a VND3.46 trillion (US$152.24 million) coastal road connecting the northern port city and the northern province of Thai Bình.

 

The coastal road route seeks to strengthen local traffic connectivity, meet the increasing demand for transportation in the region, and promote socio-economic and tourism development as well as resilience against natural disasters.

The route will be implemented in the form of public-private partnership (PPP) with a total length of 29.7kilometres, as part of a master construction plan for the Viet Nam coastal route, which has been approved by the PM.

The 20.7 kilometre section through Hai Phong city features four bridges, each measuring 3.52 kilometres, across Nam canal and the Lach Hong, Van Uc and Thai Binh Rivers, in addition to one overpass of the same length across Road 212.

The route spans nine kilometres in Thai Binh province with four small bridges measuring 127.6 metres in total.

The facility, due for completion after 30 months of construction, will be built as a third-class delta road with a width of 12 metres, permitting speeds of up to 80 kilometres per hour.

Eight flyovers will be installed on the road, two of them crossing the Van Uc and Thai Binh rivers in Hai Phong City.

It is expected that toll fee will be collected by the road’s investors for 23 years to recover capital investment.
