HCMC – Work on a 73-kilometer section of the Ho Chi Minh road will start in the fourth quarter of this year, thus resuming the construction of the almost-complete cross-country road.

This section will connect Bau Bang District, Binh Duong Province and Duc Hoa, Long An Province.

According to a Government report, 2,362 km of the 2,744-km Ho Chi Minh road had been completed by May 2022.

The Chon Thanh-Duc Hoa section will begin in Tru Van Tho Commune, Bau Bang District, Binh Duong Province, and end at the intersection with National Highway N2, Duc Hoa District, Long An Province.

The project, approved by the Ministry of Transport in 2017, was initially scheduled to commence construction in 2019 and be completed at the end of 2021. However, the project was put on hold then due to economic difficulties.

To proceed with the project at the request of the National Assembly via Resolution 63/2022, the Ministry of Transport has approved the Chon Thanh-Duc Hoa section and assigned the Ho Chi Minh Road Management Board to act as the project investor.

The project will be divided into two phases. The first phase will develop the first two lanes for vehicles with a width of 11 meters. The section will be widened to six lanes in the next phase.

The project needs a total of VND2,293 billion, with VND264 billion for compensation, site clearance and resettlement and VND1,667 billion for construction.
