Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on September 7 attended a ground-breaking ceremony for a Thai Nguyen-Bac Kan expressway and an upgrade of 25km long National Highway 3 section.

The BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) project, estimated to cost nearly VND2,750 billion, is scheduled for completion by the end of 2016.

The project aims to meet the transport demand, reduce congestion and traffic accidents on Highway No 3.  It will also serve as an important link in the overall transport network connecting the northern mountainous provinces with Hanoi and enhance national security and defence.

At the ground-breaking ceremony, PM Dung said the project will play a key role in improving local people’s daily life, and contribute to promoting socio-economic development in the region and the country as a whole.

He asked localities and contractors to pay particular attention to site clearance and carry out the project on in a timely manner, meeting schedule and technical specifications.
