On May 21, many drivers continued at BOT T2 station on Highway 91 (Thot Not District, Can Tho City), going from An Giang Province to Can Tho City, to respond to the unreasonable charge collection. .

The drivers said that their vehicles ran from An Giang to a Tea T junction, turn into Highway 80, and then accumulate a Vam Kong Bridge to Ho Chi Minh City. The distance they use Highways 91 is only about 300m but they have to be bought at Station T2 BOT, paying for the entire route about 50 km to the center of Can Tho City.

"My truck is 18 tons, carrying goods from Saigon to An Giang regularly. Previously, the ferry lost 120,000 VND. Now there is a free bridge, but when the car runs back and forth, there It costs 140,000 VND, even if only a few hundred meters are used, a BOT project is too ridiculous, "says a driver.

After being explained by the executive forces of Can Tho City, the drivers are leaving. The event lasted about an hour, causing local traffic congestion.

Mr Nguyen Van Kiem – Station Manager T2 (National Joint Investment Stock Company 91 – An Giang) said, in order to ensure safety and order, that functional agencies require units to release stations actively, than Wait until the congestion is more or 750 m as prescribed.

Director of Transportation Department of An Giang province, Nguyen Viet Three, said, “Everyone feels unreasonable in giving the current T2 T2 station.

According to Mr Tri, the Provincial Party Committee, the Gang People Committee worked with the Ministry of Transport several times but there were no results. Following receipt of the report, the Prime Minister also directed the Ministry of Transport to replace it with a T2 station.

"The response to the legal rights of the people in this case is too true," said Department of Transport director An Giang and he was expecting the drivers to calm down, waiting for the Ministry of Transport to solve it. .
