Over $120 million may be earmarked for the construction of a road which would link the longest expressway in Vietnam to Sa Pa, a famous resort town in the northern region.

According to a proposal put forward by the People’s Committee of Lao Cai Province, Provincial Highway 155 will be built under a project which costs a total of 2.6 trillion (US$122.1 million), the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism cited Dau Tu (Investment), a local newswire, as saying.  

The proposed new road will link Sa Pa with the Noi Bai-Lao Cai Expressway, which is the country’s longest of its kind, and the neighboring province of Lai Chau and run along with the existing National Highway 4D.
