VietNamNet Bridge – A project aimed at cleaning up a rubbish dump near the Nam Giao altar will soon be carried out in Vinh Loc Town, in the central province of Thanh Hoa.
The project was set up to minimise environmental pollution in order to protect the altar, situated in the Ho Dynasty Citadel, a World Cultural Heritage site.
Rubbish will be buried at a far away site following pollution treatment, after which the old dump will be levelled, trees planted over it and a new site developed in neighbouring Vinh Hoa Commune.
The new dump will receive investment of nearly VND20 billion (nearly US$961,000) from the provincial Department of Natural Resources and Environment.
* Redesign for Ha Noi Museum
The Ha Noi People's Committee has approved the re-design of exhibition content at the Ha Noi Museum.
According to the new plans, the museum will have one outdoor and four indoor exhibition areas.
A hall on the first floor will display the image of a spiritual dragon, a symbol closely connected to the culture and history of the city while visitors can indulge themselves in the more natural characteristics of the capital on the second floor.
Historical stories of Thang Long-Ha Noi, dating from the 11th to the early 20th centuries, will be housed on the third floor. Photographs and items from the French resistance war to the doi moi (renewal) process will be on display on the fourth floor.
The re-design, to be complete by December 2014, will cost VND755 billion (more than US$36 million).
The Ha Noi Department of Construction will be the main investor while New Zealand Story Inc will take responsibility for design development.
