The delay of construction leads to stagnant consumption of other materials such as iron, steel and cement.
The supply of sand in the local market mainly comes from outside because the province limited sand exploitation for environment protection.
Accordingly, province authorities advised people to use alternative materials stone or dust from thermal power plants or soil from dredging canals and rivers.
Additionally, the province administration petitioned the government to have special policies to subsidize or adjust bidding contracts and have alternative materials.
