HCMC – The government of HCMC expects to finalize several major infrastructure projects in 2024, thus alleviating traffic congestion in the city.

One key project is the road connecting Tran Quoc Hoan and Cong Hoa streets in the vicinity of Tan Son Nhat International Airport. This project, costing over VND4.8 trillion, is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.

When in place, the road will provide a connection between the under-construction Terminal 3 at the Tan Son Nhat International Airport and the city center.

In District 7, the tunnel at the Nguyen Van Linh-Nguyen Huu Tho intersection is also set to be completed next year. The first phase of this project, costing VND830 billion, includes two tunnels, with each being 456 meters long having three lanes.

The first tunnel is slated to open to traffic in mid-2024, with the second tunnel following six months later.

Several other significant projects are scheduled for completion in 2024, including the Nam Ly Bridge in Thu Duc City, the Rach Dia and Phuoc Long bridges connecting District 7 with the outlying district of Nha Be, and the Ba Hom Bridge in Binh Tan District.

Additionally, expansion projects for Tan Ky Tan Quy, Ten Lua, and Duong Quang Ham streets are also planned for completion in 2024.

Bui Xuan Cuong, vice chairman of the HCMC People’s Committee, emphasized the need to boost work on three crucial projects aimed at improving traffic conditions in HCMC, including HCMC Beltway No. 3, An Phu interchange, and the expansion of National Highway 50.
