The road building project has a total investment of 60 billion VND (2.6 million USD), with the investor being the province’s management board for projects on agriculture and rural development. The sum will be sourced from the local budget and other legal funding.

In Yen Bai, the road begins at an intersection with Tan Linh-Lam Thuong road in Luc Yen, 1 km away from Ben Lan market of Tan Linh commune. It ends at a point in Minh Chuan commune of Yen Bai’s Luc Yen district, on the boundary between Yen Bai and Lao Cai.

The road measures 13.6 km in length and 6.5 m in width. Its surface will be concretised with 20-cm layer of cement.

The completion of the route is hoped to connect Luc Yen’s western communes with Bao Yen district, contributing to the national target programme of building new-style rural areas in Luc Yen.

The work is projected to finish by December 31 next year.

On the occasion, the Yen Bai People’s Committee awarded two collectives and three individuals who donated land and asset donation for the construction of the road.
