Many ongoing construction projects for celebrating the coming 450th anniversary of Vientiane proclamation as national capital are going in full swing to ensure timely completion.
Vientiane Mayor Sombath Yialiheu and his delegation inspected the ongoing construction projects in Vientiane Capital, including the four-lane road expansion and That Luang's esplanade expansion construction, the construction of the"Thammasapha" Buddhist Hall ground, "Nong Saphanglene" pond construction, Mekong River bank development and Chao Anouvong's public park.
The progress of the construction projects is satisfactory, which will ensure the completion before the start of the celebration. The celebration is scheduled for 15-21 November.
The construction of the Thammasapha ground in That Luang's square is now completed 35 per cent and 75 per cent for the Nong Saphanglen construction.
The Mekong River bank development and Chao Anouvong's public park are nearing completion, which account for 90 per cent of the target. The contractor is speeding up the remaining works of the Chao Anouvong public park to welcome the upcoming traditional boat racing festival in this weekend - 24 October. The construction work of the four-lane road access to That Luang (grand stupa) has proceeded on well and by the target.
Those projects are among the 21 government focal projects in celebration of the coming 450th anniversary of Vientiane proclamation as the national capital. The four-lane road is 434.28 metres long and 21 m wide with a pavement on both sides. The 13-m wide road surface will be paved with asphalt concrete and all works are scheduled for completion in the next two weeks.
