HCMC – The Ho Chi Minh Road Project Management Board has proposed the Ministry of Transport approve the VND4,200-billion expansion of a section of the Ho Chi Minh Road from Nam Can to Dat Mui in Ca Mau Province.

The targeted road section is the final part of the Ho Chi Minh Road. The initial phase of the project, covering 58.7 kilometers from Ong Tinh Bridge in Nam Can District to the Dat Mui tourist site in Ngoc Hien District, Ca Mau Province, was completed in 2016.

Recognizing the need to upgrade and widen the road to accommodate the growing travel demand, the Ho Chi Minh Road Project Management Board has proposed upgrading the entire route with two lanes for vehicles and widening the road surface to 12 meters. Additionally, a section within the city will be expanded to 21 meters with four lanes.

Since site clearance for the Nam Can to Dat Mui section was completed during the first phase of the project, there will be no need for further land clearance for this road upgrade and expansion.

The project’s investment cost will be sourced from the State budget. If approval is forthcoming, the Ho Chi Minh Road expansion project in Ca Mau Province is scheduled for completion in 2027.
