After three months of construction, the completed Kinh De bridge has a length of 21m, a width of 2.5m with a reinforced concrete structure design with a load of 2.5 tons. The total construction cost is nearly VND 500 million (USD 20.570), sponsored by the Hau Giang Union of Friendship Organizations in connection with the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation and UK-based oil and gas company Harbour Energy.

The bridge was put into use to create favorable conditions for people and students to travel conveniently, and transport agricultural products easily, contributing to promoting the local economy and society.

On the same day, the delegation also came to hand over the project of renovating and repairing the kitchen of Luong Tam Kindergarten in Luong Tam commune; surveying Hau Giang 3 bridge in Long Phu commune, and Bay Phuoc bridge in Thanh Xuan commune, Chau Thanh A district.
