Nation’s highest bridge opens to traffic

QĐND – Friday, August 13, 2010, 21:0 (GMT+7)

Pa Uon bridge in the northern mountainous province of Son La has been opened to traffic, according to the project’s management board.

Construction of the bridge with abutments of 98 metres high, the highest in the country, started in May 2007.

The inauguration of the 938-m long bridge that connects Son La and Lai Chau provinces in the northern mountainous region facilitates vehicular traffic between the two and also effectively serves the northwestern region’s socio-economic development strategy and national defence.
