HCMC – The HCMC government has called on Binh Duong and Dong Nai provinces to quickly complete the relevant procedures for the Ring Road 3 project, which will connect HCMC, Binh Duong, Dong Nai and Long An.
HCMC Chairman Phan Van Mai, on April 12, signed an urgent dispatch proposing the governments of Binh Duong and Dong Nai submit their plans for developing the ring road project to their provincial People’s Councils so that the councils can issue a resolution to approve the project prior to April 20.
The proposal is aimed at ensuring the legality of the project’s prefeasibility study report before the National Assembly gives nod to the project at a sitting in May.
The Long An People’s Council and the HCMC People’s Council had earlier issued resolutions to pass the Ring Road 3 development project and commit to allocating sufficient funding for the project.
The first phase of the Ring Road 3 project will be over 76.3 kilometers long, have four lanes and allow a maximum speed of 80 kilometers per hour, while its parallel road will have two or three lanes.
The Ring Road 3 project will be executed under the public investment mode using the budgets of the State and the localities, with a total investment of more than VND75.3 trillion.
After the National Assembly passes the project, work on the Ring Road 3 will begin in 2023. The ring road will be opened to traffic in 2025, the local media reported.
