Chairman of the National Assembly (NA) Nguyen Sinh Hung has attended ground-breaking ceremonies for the two major projects in the central Nghe An province.
On February 15, NA Chairman attended a ceremony to kick-start construction work on a flyover at the intersection between National Highway 46 and the North-South railway in Nghe An.
At a total cost of VND450 billion (US$21.4 million) under the build-operate-transfer (BOT) form, the project is expected to be open to traffic by April next year.
The project, one of 80 flyovers on the North-South railway, will help ease traffic congestion and reduce accidents at the intersection.
National Highway 46 links National Highway 1A and the province's western districts.
The top legislator also witnessed the official opening of workshop no 1 of a hi-tech industrial complex project with total capitalisation of nearly VND2,200 billion.
The production line is one of eight workshops producing high-grade jewellery products and on completion is expected to generate approximately 16,000 jobs in the next five years.
The same day, the NA leader joined a tree-planting ceremony in Nam Dan district to commemorate the late President Ho Chi Minh.
