The bridge crosses Vam Toma River with an estimated length of 30m, the total cost of building the bridge and the path is about VND 230 million due to the donation of the Tue Tam VH Charity Group (Ho Chi Minh City) and Toma Church.
Tue Tam VH Charity group is a collection of compassionate people, operating on the spirit of volunteerism, wanting to bring joy, sharing difficulties with local authorities, helping people in rural areas to have solid and safe concrete bridges for traveling. It is known that this is the 50th bridge that the Tue Tam VH Charity Group has mobilized to build within 3 years since the establishment of the group.
Hamlet 4 of Luong Tam commune has the largest area compared to other hamlets. People living along the Vam Toma River, to go back to the hamlet, they have to go a double distance road to reach a bridge across the river, many households have made their own unsafe vehicles. Facing those pressing difficulties, Luong Tam Bridge was officially built. The bridge is expected to be completed by the end of April 2019.
