A 26.2-km road under construction is also designed to serve as an embankment to prevent flooding in Vientiane and also handle rising numbers of vehicles from other parts of the capital. Built under the US$36.5-million Flood and Drought Risk Management and Mitigation Project (FDM), the road will connect Hadxaifong district’s Thanalaeng village to Pakngum district’s Huaymark Hiew water gate. The road in question will connect with a 10-km plus concrete road in Phao village which is under construction and National Road No. 13 South.
