When we came back to Song Lo district in early September, going on Provincial Road 307B, from km 0 in Nhao Son commune to Then ferry station, we no longer saw automobiles and motorcycles lumbering across potholes and people wetting the road to reduce dust, as we saw here in April 2018. This road is being restored and upgraded, almost completed.

According to the Song Lo Project Construction Management Board, the upgrading of Provincial Road 307B was started in December 2018. The 2.43-km road, starting from Nhao Son commune to Then ferry station, costs VND110 billion for construction, invested by Song Lo District People's Committee. The provincial road, with a surface breadth of 22m, was built by a consortium of Ket Hien Trading and Construction Co., Ltd. and Hai Hung Construction and Trading Co., Ltd. The provincial budget will fund VND100 billion in 2018-2020 and the rest will be deducted from the medium-term public investment fund of the District People’s Committee in 2016-2020.

This is a key traffic route linking Song Lo district with Lap Thach district and other localities. Thousands of vehicles per day use it. Understanding it, the two-contractor consortium has utilized every advantage like good weather and mobilized available vehicles and human resources to speed up construction, particularly the section crossing Cham Bu Pond, Lung Gi Village. Especially, by promptly tackling emerging difficulties and obstacles and having support from local residents, the provincial budget has allocated up to VND80 billion for the project as of September 2019. The contractors have basically completed the ground and focused on building drainage systems. Under the commitment of the two contractors, with current good weather, the drainage system, sidewalks, safety signaling systems and asphalted surface will be completed in the fourth quarter and handled to the investor in December 2019.

Song Lo is a mountainous district, lying quite far from the provincial economic and political center. The upgrading of Provincial Road 307B not only facilitates traveling and economic exchange between the district with other localities, promote socioeconomic development and attract investment in Song Lo but also helps gradually improve the road system according to the construction plan for the western region of Vinh Phuc province.
