HCMC – The HCMC People’s Committee has approved an extension of the completion date for Metro Line No. 2, which connects Ben Thanh Market in downtown and Tham Luong depot in District 12, from 2026 to 2030, reported the Vietnam News Agency.

The Management Authority for Urban Railways of HCMC (MAUR), the project’s investor, has been tasked with creating detailed construction plans and ensuring the project adheres to the new schedule.

MAUR is also responsible for proposing solutions to overcome any obstacles and allocating resources to complete any unfinished components if the project falls behind schedule.

Regarding land clearance, MAUR must actively collaborate with relevant departments and units to expedite construction, relocate infrastructure, and ensure timely handover to construction contractors according to the approved plan.

The Ben Thanh-Tham Luong metro line, known as Metro Line 2, was approved in 2010 with a total investment of nearly VND47.9 trillion. It spans over 11 kilometers, featuring nine underground stations and one elevated station, connecting multiple districts including Districts 1, 3, 10, 12, Tan Binh, and Tan Phu.

The project was originally slated for completion by 2026.
