HCMC – Several major traffic projects are set for completion by the end of 2023, bringing significant improvements to transportation infrastructure in Vietnam.

These projects include the My Thuan 2 Bridge and the My Thuan-Can Tho Expressway in the Mekong Delta, the Metro Line No. 1 in HCMC, and a section of the Nhon-Hanoi Station urban railway in Hanoi.

The My Thuan 2 Bridge has a total length of over 6.6 kilometers, including approach roads, and connects Tien Giang and Vinh Long provinces. It links to the My Thuan-Can Tho Expressway, which stretches over 23 kilometers between Vinh Long and Dong Thap provinces.

Once completed, the two projects will halve the travel time between HCMC and Can Tho City and stimulate regional development.

In HCMC, the Metro Line No. 1 project is nearing completion. This 19.7-kilometer urban railway will link Ben Thanh Market in District 1 to Suoi Tien Theme Park in Thu Duc City, providing a modern and efficient public transportation option.

Hanoi is also making progress with the long-stalled Nhon-Hanoi Station urban railway. Part of the project, including the elevated section from Nhon to Cau Giay station, will begin commercial service this year, improving public transit within the capital city.

Several component projects of the North-South Expressway are expected to be opened to traffic by year-end, including the sections of National Highway 45-Nghi Son and Nghi Son-Dien Chau.

These infrastructure developments are expected to widen the transportation networks and fuel economic growth. The completion of these projects will improve travel efficiency and contribute to the development of the country.
