THACO joins Groundbreaking Ceremony for 2 bridges in Tri Ton District
On October 29, the People's Committee of Tri Ton District, An Giang Province, broke ground on the Kenh 15 Bridge in Co To Town and the Tan Vong Bridge in Tan Tuyen Commune. The total cost of the two bridges is VND2.93 billion, of which THACO donated VND2.35 billion to contribute to the transformation of Tri Ton's economic development.
Attendees at the event included Ms. Nguyen Thi Phuong Lan, the District Party Deputy Secretary and Chairwoman of the Tri Ton District People's Council; Mr. Tran Minh Giang, Vice Chairman of the Tri Ton District People's Committee; and Mr. Nguyen Van Nhut, THACO AGRI An Giang Operational Director.
The temporary bridges in Co To town and Tan Tuyen commune posed a high risk of breaking, posing a danger to residents and not ensuring the safety of traffic.
The Kenh 15 Bridge, which connects To Binh and Soc Triet sub-villages in Co To Town, is designed with three spans, a total length of 30 meters, a width of 4 meters, a load capacity of 5 tons, and a construction budget of over VND1.33 billion. The bridge will benefit over 300 households and 810 hectares of rice fields, making it easier to transport goods and agricultural products.
On the other hand, the Tan Vong Bridge in Tan Loi hamlet, Tan Tuyen commune, has three spans, a total length of 46 meters, a width of 4 meters, a load capacity of 5 tons, and a construction budget of VND1.6 billion. The bridge will facilitate transportation for 247 households living along the Tan Vong Canal and make it easier to cultivate 2,000 hectares of rice.
The total construction budget for the two bridges is VND 2.93 billion, of which THACO has donated VND2.35 billion. The remaining amount was contributed by Tri Ton District, Tan Tuyen Commune, and Co To Town. The two bridges are expected to be completed and operational by February 2024.
