Authorities in Thua Thien-Hue Province, central Vietnam initiated on Saturday the construction of a bridge and a coastal road worth a combined VND3.4 trillion (US$148.7 million), aimed at creating a tourist route along the local coastline.

The groundbreaking of the province’s coastal road and bridge crossing Thuan An estuary was held by the provincial People’s Committee in Hai Duong Commune, Hue City on Saturday.

The objective of the project is to form a tourist route along the coast of Thua Thien-Hue Province.

The cost is more than VND3.4 trillion ($148.7 million), and the project developer is the Thua Thien-Hue management board for investment and construction of traffic works.

During the implementation of the project's first phase, expected to last for three years, a 7,785-meter coastal road will be built to connect Tam Giang Bridge and the bridge crossing Thuan An estuary.

The bridge over Thuan An estuary will be 2,360.6 meters long and 20 meters wide.

The bridge is considered a major work aimed at boosting connectivity and creating a beautiful structure in the coastal area and lagoon of Thua Thien-Hue, said Nguyen Van Phuong, chairman of the provincial administration.

“Upon completion, the coastal route will help relieve pressure from the national highways and open up opportunities for investment and economic development in the province,” Phuong said.

This is an important project of the province and the country in general, Phuong stated, adding that provincial authorities will closely supervise the implementation to make sure it is complete on schedule.

Local residents have been longing for the construction of the route, especially the bridge over Thuan An estuary, said Tran Van Phuong, who resides in Hai Duong Commune.

“The bridge will make it much easier for people to travel from Hai Duong Commune to Thuan An Ward and the center of Hue City,” Phuong elaborated.
