HCMC – The government of Can Tho City has proposed using nearly VND1.2 trillion from its budget to upgrade five oft-congested intersections in this Mekong Delta city.
At the Can Tho People’s Council year-end meeting on December 6, Nguyen Thuc Hien, vice chairman of the city’s government, presented the proposal to seek council approval for the project to upgrade and expand the five key intersections in downtown Can Tho.
The intersections are Mau Than-Ba Thang Hai-Tran Hung Dao, Mau Than-Nguyen Van Cu-Vo Van Kiet, Nguyen Van Linh-Nguyen Van Cu, Nguyen Van Linh-Ba Thang Hai and Nguyen Van Linh-Ba Muoi Thang Tu.
This infrastructure project will be executed from 2021 to 2025. In the first phase, the city will expand these intersections. In the future, the city will consider building overpasses or tunnels in the areas if traffic increases.
