A 10.46km-long road to the west of central Da Nang city was opened for traffic on April 25, expected to foster the travel to the Ba Na-Suoi Mo tourism area, one of the city’s famous interesting places.

The two-way road, Ba Na-Suoi Mo, is 10.5m wide on each side and has two 5m-wide pavements. It was built at a cost of more than VND1.07 trillion (US$50.95 million).
Ba Na-Suoi Mo road and the conjoined Hoang Van Thai road form an important axis linking inner Lien Chieu district and outlying Hoa Vang district, thus promoting development in the west of the city, said Director of the municipal Department of Transport Le Van Trung.
The new road is a necessary condition for the opening of a bus route to the Ba Na-Suoi Mo tourism area in Hoa Vang, he noted, adding that it will also help attract investments in untapped potential of mountainous and midland communes of this district.
The Ba Na-Suoi Mo tourism area houses Ba Na Mountain, which is 1,487m high above the sea level, and Suoi Mo stream lying at its foot, according to the Da Nang authorities’ portal.
The mountain is home to a nature reserve with a diversity of rare fauna and flora species.
It also accommodates a cable car system that has a length of 5,042km and a height difference of more than 1,291m between its upper and lower stations, setting two Guinness World Records for the longest and highest non-stop cable car.
