New bus route to General Giap’s tomb opens in Quang Binh

A bus route linking Dong Hoi railway station to General Giap’s tomb in Quang Binh Province will soon be open.

The Ministry of Transport (MoT) has just approved the proposal from the Quang Binh provincial People’s Committee in order to serve the high demand for transportation to the tomb in Vung Chua – Dao Yen. The route will be about 70 kilometres long.

 

Thousands per day pay tribute to General Giap in Quang Binh Province

According to the provincial government, between 1,000 and 3,000 people per day come to pay tribute to General Vo Nguyen Giap. As many as 90% of the visitors are from outside Quang Binh Province.

The bus route would run through major thoroughfares in Dong Hoi City. It is hoped that this will mitigate traffic congestion in the area.

The MoT requested a change to the schedules of any bus routes that use the same stops as the expected route to ensure efficiency.

Previously, Minister of Transport, Dinh La Thang, requested that Vietnam Railway Corporation (VRC) set up a station linking to General Giap’s tomb to serve the heightened demand for transportation created by the tomb.

VRA will make a plan for the construction after finding a suitable location for the station.
