In my previous post I showed pictures of power cables, mainly on Trang Hung Dau and mused about them being moved underground some day.
Co-incidentally Vietnam Daily News published an article about the same thing.Full article here
The main concern is that there are no standards in place and cables are being buried in a haphazard manner. On Tran Hung Dao they'll be in lined ditches with power and telecom wires kept apart. On Le Than Ton they'll be buried 75cm underground in plastic pipes with no concrete support.
Great, the era of the permanent roadworks is dawning.
