HCMC – The Thang Long project management board has been tasked with preparing an investment proposal for the expansion of the Cao Bo-Mai Son Expressway, a section of the North-South expressway located in the northern province of Ninh Binh.

The expansion aims to widen the expressway to six traffic lanes, with an estimated investment of VND2 trillion, which will be financed through increased budget revenue.

The primary route will be expanded by an additional 15.75 meters in width, resulting in a total roadbed width of 32.75 meters. This expansion plan also includes the development of four bridge structures along the expressway, namely the Cao Bo Bridge, Cam Bridge, National Highway 10 overpass, and Quan Vinh Bridge.

The proposal for expansion is set to be submitted to the relevant authorities for consideration in February of the upcoming year.

The Cao Bo-Mai Son Expressway, with a total length of 15.2 kilometers, is the shortest among the 11 sections of the North-South Expressway in the 2017-2020 phase.

Since its opening for traffic in February 2022, this expressway segment has posed safety risks due to its narrow roadbed and the absence of emergency lanes.

The Ministry of Public Security has categorized it as one of the expressways with potential safety risks, emphasizing the urgent need for investment in its expansion.
