HANOI – The Cao Bo-Mai Son section of the North-South Expressway project was officially opened to traffic today, February 4 after two years of construction.
The Cao Bo-Mai Son subproject, whose investor is the Ninh Binh Department of Transport, is one of the three sections of the North-South Expressway project that are financed by the State budget.
The 15-kilometer Cao Bo-Mai Son expressway, with a total investment of over VND1.6 trillion, starts at the end of the Cau Gie-Ninh Binh expressway in Y Yen District, Nam Dinh Province and ends at National Highway 1A in Ninh Binh City.
The subproject got off the ground in December 2019 amid the Covid pandemic. With the enhanced efforts of the Ninh Binh Transport Department and contractors and the support from the authorities of Ninh Binh and Nam Dinh provinces, the subproject was completed meeting safety requirements.
Earlier on January 28, the Ministry of Transport temporarily opened to traffic the Cao Bo-Mai Son expressway due to the rising travel demand in the lead up to and during the Lunar New Year holiday.
