A coastal route costing nearly VND1 trillion (US$42.5 million) has been put into use for economic development in Khanh Hoa Province, south-central Vietnam.
The coastal route was put into operation in Van Ninh District, Khanh Hoa Province on Monday morning.
The road, stretching from National Highway 1 to Dam Mon Peninsula in Van Phong Bay, located in Van Ninh District, is about 14.3 kilometers long and 34 meters wide with six lanes.
The project was developed by Van Phong Economic Zone Management Board, and the construction was initiated in 2016.
The road was built to create favorable conditions for transport infrastructure in the region, connect Hon Lon Island with other islands in Van Phong Bay, and gradually complete the infrastructure of the northern area of the Van Phong Economic Zone.

Van Phong to become the center of a green economy
At the inauguration ceremony, Nguyen Tan Tuan, chairman of the Khanh Hoa People's Committee, said that this is an important route connecting infrastructure in the northern area of the Van Phong Economic Zone.
“The Van Phong Economic Zone is one of the three key economic zones of Khanh Hoa Province,” Tuan said.
“It is an area with favorable conditions for economic development and has great potential to become a center of the green economy in the country.”
The Van Phong Economic Zone covers an area of about 150,000 hectares, according to the master plan of the Khanh Hoa People's Committee.
This place plays a leading role in attracting investment and is a driving force for the economic development of neighboring regions and the whole country.
