Danang City People’s Committee has just approved the construction of a road to the beach at a local beach-side resort. Visitors at a beach in Danang City VND 6.5 billion (USD296,586) will be spent to build a 271.4-metre long road at the The Song Beach Resort in Ngu Hanh Son District the committee said, adding that this will be one among several such projects built from now to 2019 with an aim to create ways for local people and tourists to use the public beaches. The committee has also announced the reclamation of 6,680 square metres in My Khe and My An wards in Ngu Hanh Son District for the beach road project. For decades, beach-side resorts, hotels and entertainment centres along coastal roads in Ngu Hanh Son District have occupied a large beach area in front of their buildings, so local people have had to pay to use beaches or use crowded public beaches. The city’s chairman, Huynh Duc Tho has instructed the construction department to open 15m or 20m wide roads so locals and tourists can access what are already public beaches.
