Ministry will require local transport authorities and agencies to conduct tests to weigh capacity, height, and length restrictions to prevent fatal accidents.

If the bridges are beyond repair, they will be completely rebuilt.

Vietnam Road Administration also plans to build 28 additional suspension bridges in mountainous areas, midlands, north, central and central highlands provinces.
