The Ministry of Transport has sent related documents to the Prime Minister to ask for an advance of VND400billion (US$20 million) to implement three major traffic projects.
The ministry plans to use VND300 billion ($15 million) for building the Ba Ren Bridge on 1A Highway in Quang Nam Province and the Cau Chanh Bridge on 37 Highway in Hai Duong Province. The remaining fund will be used for the Huong An Bridge on 1A Highway in Quang Nam Province. The Huong An Bridge project is at the completion stage but has run out of funds to complete.
To date, vehicles have to use temporary bridges causing dangerous conditions during the rainy season.
Earlier, the ministry had proposed to the Prime Minister to advance VND1, 342 billion ($67 million) to complete certain projects that are scheduled to complete by this year.
