The 10km-bypass aims to curb congestion on Highway No 1A, paving the way for turning Duc Pho into a township by 2015.
Thien Tan Investment and Construction Joint-stock Company began construction of the VND600 billion (US$28.7 million) Duc Pho Bypass three years ago under the BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) model.
During the opening ceremony, the Minister of Transport, Dinh La Thang, awarded a certificate of merit to Thien Tan JSC for its efforts to complete construction of the bypass on time. — VNS
