It's difficult to find a single flat meter of road along the 2-kilometer (1.4 miles) An Duong Vuong Street in District 8, Ho Chi Minh City.Bus driver Le Anh Nhut said: "Drivers call it a 'suffering' road because vehicles have to move at a fast speed and break down constantly."

The street has been in bad condition for nearly a decade now, locals said.“On rainy days, the roads are slippery and flooded; On sunny days, the mud becomes muddy and forms puddles of water,” said Ngo Phong Tran, a street vendor.

A pothole stretches 3 meters long and 2 meters wide on the street.

Since the area near Phu Dinh Port became a hub for new construction projects, more and more trucks are using the street every day and destroying its surface, said Thien, a bus conductor.

“It’s very difficult to do business on this street because it's dusty when the sun shines and flooded when it rains.We desperately need the drainage system installed,” said resident Nguyen Thanh Nghia.

A drainage project for An Duong Vuong Street should be finished early next month, but many parts of the project, including concrete sewer pipes, are still lying out along the street.

The street is flooded even when it’s not raining.Local authorities said they were aware of the situation, but without the sewers, upgrading the street would be pointless.Currently, they are urging the contractor and investor of the street drainage project to speed up the progress and complete the project on schedule.
