HCMC – The La Son-Tuy Loan Expressway connecting Thua Thien-Hue Province and Danang City, part of the North-South Expressway, will be put into use at the end of the next quarter.
On March 8, a representative of the Ho Chi Minh Road Project Management Board said the La Son-Tuy Loan Expressway is 99% complete. The contractor is adding and moving some traffic signs and cleaning the road as required by the State Council for Acceptance of Construction Works.
The road was originally planned to be put into operation in 2020 but got postponed to the second quarter of 2021 due to the delayed construction of some sections in Danang and the landslides caused by devastating storms in 2020.
The Ministry of Transport has approved a plan to organize traffic on the expressway, allowing cars to travel on the road.
The La Son-Tuy Loan Expressway required an investment of nearly VND11.5 trillion. In the first phase of the project, the road would have two lanes and be 77.5 kilometers long and 12 meters wide. A 66-kilometer section from La Son in Thua Thien-Hue to Hoa Lien in Danang has been developed first, while the 11.5-kilometer section from Hoa Lien to Tuy Loan is a section of the current National Highway 1, which will be completed using the State budget.
The expressway will connect with the Danang-Quang Ngai Expressway to facilitate the fast and safe circulation of vehicles.
