HCMC – The People’s Council of Hoa Binh Province has passed a plan to develop a 32.5-kilometer-long expressway connecting with neighboring Son La Province, at a total cost of over VND9.7 trillion.
The road, part of the Hoa Binh-Moc Chau expressway project, is set to run from Da Bac Town in Hoa Binh Province to Chieng Yen Commune in Son La Province’s Van Ho District, the local media reported.
The project will be executed in two phases between 2022 and 2025. In the first phase, the expressway will allow a maximum speed of 80 kilometers per hour. The road will comprise a four-lane bridge, some two-lane bridges and a two-lane tunnel.
The Hoa Binh government was assigned to speed up work on the expressway and capital disbursement for the project.
Once in place, the expressway will help boost the socio-economic development of the Hoa Binh and Son La provinces and the northwest region.
The Hoa Binh-Moc Chau expressway project will have a total length of 85 kilometers, spanning 49 kilometers in Hoa Binh Province and 36 kilometers in Son La Province’s Van Ho and Moc Chau districts.
