Abstract

Rural roads are very important for economic development, especially in rural areas. This study provides an impact assessment of a rural road project in Northern Mountain of Vietnam using both quantitative and qualitative methods. The most visible evidence of economic benefit identified by all respondents was the reduction of transportation cost of goods and products, and the reduction in the time and cost for traveling. This was significantly important in areas of intensive agriculture production and remote areas in Northern Mountains.
