The approach road, with six lanes, will allow cars to run at a maximum speed of 80km/hour. The road, with a total investment more than VND930 billion (US$43.7 million) will be built within 12 months.

Speaking at the event, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Do Thong revealed that Bac Luan 2 bridge and its approach road play a crucial role in enhancing trade between Viet Nam and China.

The project will meet the demand of transporting goods and passengers of the two nations, contributing to promoting trade, economic exchange and tourism development between Quang Ninh Province and other crucial key economic areas in the North with Guangxi province, he added.
