Mr. Lum Kham Chanthapanya, head of the Public Works and Transportation office of Sangthong District, Vientiane Capital said that the department will be fixing four main roads in the district, to ease traffic along the routes.

He said that the total budget to repair the four roads is KIP 9.8 billion (USD 578,000).
Lao Youth Radio reported that the four main roads listed in the project were as follows:
The road from Tao Hai village to Phu Ghra Luo border with Vientiane province whose repair work will be on a 7 kilometers stretch, costing KIP 4.9 billion (USD 289,000).
The road from Napor village to Kwai village is 7 kilometers long and 6 meters wide and will cost KIP 2.5 billion (USD 147,000) in repair work.

The government will also be repairing the 2-layer asphalt road from Nasa to Napor and Na Charoen village, with a length of 17.2 km, worth KIP 200 million (USD 11,900).
Mr. Nam added that in 2022, through the budget allocated by the Department of Public Works and Transportation of Vientiane Capital, Sangthong District was able to repair many roads.
Mainly, the road from Paya Lat to Tau Hai which is 15 kilometers long, that costed KIP 199 million (USD 11,750). Drainage canals at 13 different points along this road were repaired as well.
