Sticking to the working principle “One step ahead,” the transport sector of Lang Son province always emphasizes transport infrastructure development.
The transport sector of Lang Son province always sticks to the directions of the Provincial People’s Committee and the resolutions of the Provincial Party Committee to manage its operations and coordinate with other branches and local authorities to complete its tasks. Last year, the transport sector of Lang Son province carried out some rural transport development projects in accordance with the rural transport development programme in the 2011 - 2015 phase. It closely regulated the management, maintenance and protection of district and commune traffic routes, planning of traffic connections, and development of supporting projects.
The sector worked out basic construction investment plans, estimated State budgets for traffic development in 2012, supervised plan implementation, adjusted plans to reality, and reviewed investment projects to ensure their match with objectives and development planning.
Lang Son province has witnessed a significant change in transport infrastructure in the past years. In the latest two years, together with the construction of key traffic routes like Road 4A, 4B, 279, and 1B, Lang Son province has mobilised capital sources for construction of transportation infrastructure in dynamic economic zones, industrial zones, tourist sites and remote and border areas. Artery roads in the province got adequate investment, providing a new look for transport road networks in 10 districts and Lang Son City. In this period, many important traffic works were built and put into use like Pac Luong - Tan Thanh Road, Cao Loc - Ba Son Road, Vinh Lai - Na Sam Road, Lung Vai - Binh Do Road, Pac Ve - Ba Xa Road, Dong Mo - Huu Kien Road, Le Dai Hanh Road and Hung Vuong Road. In particular, roads to two international border gates and two national border gates have been asphalted. Apart from investment for trunk roads, the province also built many traffic works, bridges and sewers to administrative centres of districts and communes, especially remote localities. Typical items are the bridge system spanning over the Ky Cung River like Po Loi, Khanh Khe, Ban Trai, Dong Kinh, Binh Do (Trang Dinh district) and Ban Chu (Loc Binh district).

With its outstanding achievements in 2012, the transport sector was awarded one Flag of Emulation for excellent working force for rural transport development by the Government, two Flags of Emulation (one for outstanding achievement in mountainous rural transport development and one for outstanding performance) by the Ministry of Transport, five emulating soldier titles for five individuals, and certificates of merit for five collectives and 19 individuals by the Transport Minister.
