SEACAP 30: Rural Transport Project 3 (RT3), Trials Preparation, Rural Road Surfacing Research (RRSR).
The development objective of the SEACAP 30 project is to reduce travel costs and improve access to markets, off-farm economic opportunities, and social services for poor rural communities in the 33 participating provinces in Northern and Central Vietnam. The MoT requested SEACAP to continue the Rural Road Surfacing Research (RRSR) in RT3, carrying out research in new provinces that were not included in RT2. The objective of this project was to determine cost effective surfacing and paving technology options for the selected provinces in RT3. The powerpoint presentation summarises the project work.
