HCMC – The Ministry of Transport is drawing up a prefeasibility study report for the Dau Giay-Lien Khuong expressway project connecting Dong Nai Province with Lam Dong Province in the 2021-2025 period.

The ministry said in Document 72 responding to the Dong Nai voters’ proposal on the investment in the expressway that the Dau Giay-Lien Khuong expressway would comprise the Dau Giay-Tan Phu, Tan Phu-Bao Loc and Bao Loc-Lien Khuong sections.

In 2019, the ministry assigned the Thang Long Project Management Board to conduct prefeasibility studies for the three subprojects to ensure the construction is ready in the five-year period.

The Dau Giay-Tan Phu section had earlier been scheduled to be 60 kilometers long and get off the ground in 2019. However, obstacles over funding hindered the construction of the project.

Recently, Lam Dong Province proposed the prime minister assign the province to implement the Tan Phu-Bao Loc expressway project in the 2021-2025 period under the public private partnership (PPP) format with support from the Government.

The Tan Phu-Bao Loc expressway project will require some VND18.2 trillion in investment, according to calculations by the provincial government.

The province is studying four investment solutions for the project under the PPP format with a capital recovery period of nearly 30 years. If the proposal is approved, work on the project will start this year.

Once in place, the Dau Giay-Lien Khuong expressway will shorten the travel time from HCMC to Dalat City and ease the traffic overload on National Highway 20, the only road linking Dong Nai Province and Dalat City.
