Nordic Council Approved Building More Roads in Central Vietnam.

The Nordic Development Fund (NDF) has approved a EUR 8.3 million credit to Vietnam in support of the Central Region Transport Network Project. The credit will be extended in co-financing with the Asian Development Bank as NDF’s Lead Agency. ADB will contribute with an ADF-loan up to USD 94.5 million.
     The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2009.
     NDF will finance consultancy services related to project implementation services which will include construction supervision and preparation of selected implementation documentation for civil works. NDF will also finance consultants for institutional development related to institutional strengthening, capacity building and road safety programs for the provincial agencies responsible for the administration and management of provincial roads.
     The project will ease an inadequate transport infrastructure in central Vietnam. The project will include all-weather roads connecting selected rural areas as well as district and provincial centers, road safety programs implemented, and sustainable road and bridge asset management systems for provincial road networks established.
