Viet Nam News HÀ NỘI — Many transport projects in southern localities have been delayed due to the scarcity and surging price of construction sand, Giao Thông (Transport) newspaper reported.

For instance, a contractor of the Bến Lức-Long Thành Highway said that only half of the road foundation had been built; some 80,000 cubic metres of sand are missing to complete the project’s foundation.

“We are having a headache due to sand scarcity. Foundation sand was VNĐ120,000 (US$5.2) per cubic metre, now it has risen to more than VNĐ200,000 ($8.7) per cubic metre,” he said.
