Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh inspected the project to build a 500kV electric transmission line from Quang Trach district of the central province of Quang Binh to Pho Noi of northern Hung Yen province, and presented Tet gifts to workers at the site.
The project consists of four component subprojects, with a total length of 519km and a total investment of about VND 22 trillion (USD 894.12 million). It crosses 211 communes and wards in 43 districts of nine provinces.
The first component subproject was launched on October 25, 2023, while the remaining three were started on January 18, 2024.
PM Chinh visited four positions of the project in four provinces of Thai Binh, Nam Dinh, Ninh Binh, and Thanh Hoa.
The Government leader underlined the significance of the project as a major and urgent one with an important role in ensuring national energy security, especially for the northern region.
He hailed the efforts by the Vietnam Electricity (EVN) as well as relevant ministries, sectors, and localities in overcoming difficulties to implement the project.
He asked ministries, sectors, and the EVN to work closely with local administrations and relevant agencies to mobilize personnel and vehicles and speed up the progress of the project, striving to complete and put the project into operations in June.
The PM requested localities to promptly hand over grounds to the project and show strong performance in compensation work.
He also called on residents of the localities, especially affected ones, to continue supporting the project.- (VNA/VLLF)
