The northeastern province of Quang Ninh has decided to invest in seven transport projects to promote socio-economic development in the period of 2020-22.

The projects are the road linking Ha Long-Hai Phong Expressway at km6+700 to provincial road 338; Dam Nha Mac intersection; riverside road connecting Ha Long-Hai Phong Expressway to Dong Trieu Township; Cua Luc 1 and Cua Luc 3 bridges connecting Ha Long City with Hoanh Bo District; roads connecting Cai Lan industrial park to Ha Long-Van Don Expressway; and coastal route clearance.

The total investment capital for these projects is expected to be more than VND10.5 trillion (US$433 million) and implemented from 2020 to 2022.

Most transport projects are aimed at connecting traffic, promoting the capacity and efficiency of the newly completed Ha Long-Hai Phong and Ha Long-Van Don expressways.

Projects are hoped to improve the province’s transport infrastructure system, thus contributing to the local socio-economic development and promoting local tourism and border- and marine-economic potential.

Particularly, the transport projects connecting Ha Long City with Hoanh Bo District will have three bridges. The province will firstly invest in the construction of two bridges of Cua Luc 1 and 3.

Cua Luc 1 Bridge is designed to have a length of 4.2km and Cua Luc 3 Bridge with a length of 2.4km.

The bridges are expected to be completed in 2012.

These two bridges will meet the travel needs of local people, ensuring traffic in the rainy season and reducing the overload on Bai Chay Bridge in Ha Long city.

Cua Luc 2 Bridge is expected to be built in the near future with design of movable bridge to serve maritime traffic. — VNS
