The coastal city of Da Nang in central Vietnam recently got a facelift thanks to a series of sidewalk renovations along popular tourist routes.

So far, renovations to the sidewalks and technical infrastructure along Pham Van Dong Street, which connects the Han River Bridge to Bien Dong Park in Son Tra District, have been completed.

This project is part of the city’s plans to renovate sidewalks on seven roads by adding opaque white concrete tiles interspersed with gray tiles.

According to the Da Nang Department of Transport, these types of tile have a high bearing capacity and are able to withstand the weight of vehicles.

The tiles are highly durable and the colors do not fade, making them a welcome addition to the Da Nang cityscape.  

Tactile tiles have also been installed on the sidewalks to assist the visually impaired.

Plans are also in place to repair and upgrade eight roads in Hai Chau District.

This initiative aims to enhance the stability of sidewalks and road surfaces, as well as ensure traffic safety and ease for both residents and tourists.

According to local resident and business owner Thu Binh, damaged sidewalk tiles made commuting through the coastal city particularly difficult.

“Foreign tourists often walk through the city to look for restaurants and hotels,” Binh said.

“The sidewalk renovations have given the area a new life.

“It not only enhances the overall ambiance but also adds appeal to nearby residences and shops.”
