Under the project, the provincial authority will build an 11.25-metre underground drainage, enlarge the road on top of the dam to 10.5 metres and dredge the upper section of the dam.

 

Started in June, the project is scheduled to be finished in about four months.

 

In addition, a 500-metre parking lot will be opened nearby the dam to develop tourism in the neighbourhood.

 

Dap Da was built in 1917 under the French time, blocking the Nhu Y River, an affluent of the Huong River, in an attempt to prevent saltwater intrusion for the benefit of agricultural production in Huong Thuy and Phu Vang districts.

 

It now connects Le Loi and Nguyen Sinh Cung streets in Hue city, leading people to the Thuan An beach.
