The tunnel finally broke through the last few meters of rock completing the drilling phase after nearly two years of construction.
Cu Mong tunnel is 2.6km long. Its starting point connects with the National Highway 1 at km1239+119 in Binh Dinh province and the ending point connects with the national avenue 1 at km 1247+739 in Phu Yen province.
The VND3,921 billion project was implemented under the build-operate-transfer (BOT) format.
After being completed, Cu Mong tunnel is expected to reduce travel time between Binh Dinh and Phu Yen and promote socio-eco development of the two provinces as well as other adjacent regions.
