BAC GIANG - Defining that traffic will go ahead and pave the way to create favorable conditions for the development of other fields, Bac Giang province has inked cooperation memorandum on promoting regional connectivity, building roads and bridges. Many projects are expected to open up new development space for the province and region.

Recently, the DoT of Bac Giang and Hai Duong provinces signed a cooperation agreement. Accordingly, localities are determined to speed up the progress of ongoing projects and plan to build many new connection ones.
Regarding the Dong Viet bridge project and its paths, the two sides strive to open the entire route to traffic before June 30, 2024.
Hoa Son Bridge (connecting Hiep Hoa district of Bac Giang province and Pho Yen city of Thai Nguyen province) has recently had its close segment placed. The bridge has a total length of 439 m, the bridge deck is 11 m wide. The road leading to the bridge is made in line with third grade plain road standards with a total length of more than 10 km, 11 m wide road surface, 12 m wide bed. As schedule, Hoa Son bridge will be technically opened to traffic on December 31 this year.

In addition to the above projects, Bac Giang has executed a series of projects such as Ha Bac 1 and Ha Bac 2 Bridges; preparing to start construction of the road connecting Tay Yen Tu town (Son Dong) to Quang Ninh province this year.
