The central Thua Thien-Hue provincial People’s Committee has approved a project to restore Thanh Toan tile-roof bridge with an initial investment of VND13.190 billion.
Accordingly, the design will be carefully considered and compared with scientific profile and technical drawings of the relics which was approved by authorities.
The project will be carried out over three years, starting in August 2016.
The bridge was built in 1776 in Thanh Toan village, Thanh Thuy commune, Huong Thuy district, about 8 km east of Hue city.
Like Luong in Hai Hau district, the Red River delta province of Nam Dinh, and Cau in Hoi An city, the central province of Quang Nam, Thanh Toan tile-roof bridge is an ancient architectural work with highly historic and cultural values.
It was recognized as a national relic in 1990 by the Ministry of Culture and Information (the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism at present)./.
