Bac Giang promotes traffic connectivity to facilitate development

(BGO) - In the transport infrastructure development plan for the 2021–2025 period, with a vision to 2030, the People's Committee of Bac Giang province defines that "Developing the transport infrastructure system is a focal task that needs to be prioritized to create breakthroughs for socio-economic development of each locality and the whole province... Priority will be given to routes connecting with other provinces, serving industrial and tourism development”.

Realizing this policy, a series of traffic projects linking Bac Giang with other provinces and cities are being implemented.

One of the key transport projects of the province in this period is the construction of a road connecting National Highway 37 - National Highway 17 with Vo Nhai (Thai Nguyen province), passing through the districts of Viet Yen, Tan Yen and Yen The. Its total investment is more than 1.452 trillion VND (63.88 million USD), of which 1.1 trillion VND comes from the central budget and more than 352 billion VND is sourced from the provincial budget.

The road connecting National Highway 17 and National Highway 37 through Viet Yen and Yen Dung districts.

This route is aimed at creating a driving force for the province's socio-economic development and strengthening the connection between Bac Giang’s Viet Yen, Tan Yen and Yen The districts and Thai Nguyen’s Vo Nhai district. At the same time, it will create favorable conditions to attract more investors to local industrial and hi-tech agricultural zones and clusters, which is significant for the localities to make breakthroughs and open up more trade directions.

As this is a new route, the investor - the provincial Transport and Agriculture Project Management Unit and the relevant districts are focusing on site clearance on an area of about 137.1ha. The total cost for site clearance compensation and resettlement support is estimated at nearly 283 billion VND (12.45 million USD).

Canh Nau commune (Yen The) is home to about 12.5km of the road, most of it passes through agricultural and forestry land and the residential land of more than 200 ethnic minority households. Therefore, the workload is huge and complex. Vu Manh Thuy, Secretary of the communal Party Committee, said that the commune mobilized the entire political system to get involved in the work and set up teams to come to each family to persuade them regarding land clearance. Currently, the land clearance progress is on schedule, and all problems and petitions of the local people have been resolved reasonably.

According to a representative of the provincial Transport and Agriculture Project Management Unit, the main road is divided into two sections. The first section is about 28.5km long and built according to the standard of grade-3 plain road with a bed width of 12m and a road surface of 11m. The second one, 13.6km in length, follows the standard of grade-3 mountain road with a bed width of 9m and a road surface of 8m. The road has an asphalt concrete pavement structure with drainage and traffic safety systems and intersections.

In the 2021 – 2025 period, the province strives to upgrade 70km of national highways and 250km of provincial roads with scale of grade-3 or higher; and build dynamic traffic axes, ensuring a minimum road surface size of 18m (4 lanes for motor vehicles). All district roads will have a minimum road surface size of 6m in width, all commune roads and 90 percent of village and hamlet roads will have their surface concreted...

The bridges over canals and streams are built with reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete. The project will be implemented from now to 2024. Currently, the unit has handed over the site clearance piles to Viet Yen, Tan Yen, and Yen The districts and coordinated with the provincial Departments of Natural Resources and Environment and the People's Committees of the districts to complete the procedures for changing land use purposes in order to start construction at the end of the year.

The year 2021 marks a drastic change in transport infrastructure development to connect Bac Giang with other provinces and cities in the region, turning the it into a centre with vibrant and multi-directional development.

Notably, a project to build a road and bridge linking Hiep Hoa district with Pho Yen town of Thai Nguyen province (section from National Highway 37 to Hoa Son bridge) has a total investment of more than 543 billion VND (23.9 million USD). Another project constructs Ha Bac 2 road and bridge connecting the branch route 02 of Ring Road 4 with the Yen Phong Industrial Park and National Highway 18 in Bac Ninh province, with a total investment of more than 358 billion VND (15.75 million USD). Both projects are expected to be completed and put into use in 2024.

Hoang Van Thanh, Director of the provincial Transport and Agriculture Project Management Board, said: “We have advised the province to focus on developing infrastructure synchronously, serving travel demands inside and outside the province, including breakthrough development of the road transport network, increasing the length and scale of roads, and ensuring the connection between modes of transport, thus contributing to fostering socio-economic development. It is also an opportunity for mountainous and remote localities to tap their potential and boost production, trade and service growth”.
