HCMC – Work on the Long Thanh-Ben Luc Expressway, connecting Dong Nai and Long An provinces, is set to be completed by late 2025 after a restart in 2023 following a four-year suspension.

The 58-km expressway project, developed by the Vietnam Expressway Corporation (VEC), commenced construction in 2014 with an initial completion date set for 2019. However, changes in funding allocation led to a construction halt until last year, as confirmed by the Ministry of Transport.

Funding for the project comes from the Asian Development Bank (ADB), Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), and local reciprocal sources.

Once completed, the expressway linking the Dau Giay-Long Thanh and Ben Luc-Trung Luong expressway sections will significantly reduce travel time between the Mekong Delta region and southeastern provinces, bypassing the need to go through HCMC.

Featuring four traffic lanes and two emergency lanes, the expressway is designed for a maximum speed of 120kph.
