HCMC – Binh Duong Province, one of the localities traversed by HCMC Beltway No. 4, is seeking public feedback on site clearance in preparation for the construction of the HCMC Beltway No. 4 project next year.
On September 21, the Binh Duong Traffic Works Construction Authority held a meeting with local residents to announce the investment policy for HCMC Beltway No. 4.
As per the plan, Binh Duong authorities have endorsed a 47.8 kilometers section of the Beltway No. 4 from the Thu Bien bridge to the Saigon River, which will be developed under the public-private partnership format in phase 1.
The project, which comprises site clearance and construction at a cost of VND18,247 billion, is scheduled for execution from 2023 to 2026.
The route will pass through Bac Tan Uyen District, Tan Uyen City, Thu Dau Mot City, Ben Cat Town, and various crucial locations in Binh Duong Province, including Vietnam Singapore Industrial Park III and interchanges with the future HCMC-Chon Thanh Expressway.
HCMC Beltway No. 4 will be developed as an expressway, featuring between four and ten lanes for vehicles, with a maximum speed of 100 kilometers per hour.
Vo Ngoc Sang, deputy director of the Binh Duong Traffic Works Construction Authority, emphasized the project’s significance, stating that it will act as a catalyst for the development of Binh Duong, HCMC, Dong Nai, and several other surrounding provinces.
Upon completion, the Beltway No. 4 section in Binh Duong is expected to reduce travel time from the province to Long Thanh International Airport in neighboring Dong Nai Province and other parts of the southern key economic region, while also stimulating the socio-economic development of the region.
