The first phase costing VND14.48 trillion will develop a total of 787 kilometers of roads located in economic regions and coastal economic zones until 2020.

According to the Ministry of Transport, 1,800 kilometer of the road will be taken from sections of already existing provincial roads and national highways along coastal areas.

While the additional 481 kilometers will be zoned to provinces and the other 741 kilometer will have road sections built under a plan that will be submitted for the Prime Minister’s approval, reports Vietnam Net.

The new coastal road will be built to make domestic travel easier and will cost a forecast investment capital of VND27.61 trillion.
