The reason is due to disagreement and arguments about the project. 

In the spirit of listening to people's opinions, the province decided to cancel the project to concentrate on investment in major projects related to education and social welfare development projects.

The project is estimated at nearly VND15 billion (US$632,494) from the local budget, and it will be implemented in the period of 2023-2025.
