The Directorate for Roads of Vietnam has proposed a VND180-billion (US$8.75 million) plan to establish rescue centers along major national highways, Tuoi Tre reported Tuesday.

 

Under the proposal, three of nine proposed centers will be tested in a pilot project along national highways No.3 and No.1 in the northern province of Bac Kan, and the central provinces of Quang Binh and Phu Yen, according to the newspaper.

 

The centers were expected to go into operation in the second quarter of next year at a total cost of VND98 billion ($4.76 million), the report said.

 

The project would also use the funds to buy new advanced rescue equipment, Tuoi Tre reported.
