HCMC – My Thuan-Can Tho Expressway, which connects the Mekong Delta provinces of Vinh Long and Dong Thap, is set to be opened to traffic on Sunday, December 24.

The Ministry of Transport has asked the My Thuan Project Management Board to promptly complete the necessary procedures for the expressway’s operation.

Having a total length of nearly 23 kilometers and costing over VND4,800 billion, the expressway has taken three years to build.

The opening of the expressway will coincide with the inauguration of the My Thuan 2 Bridge.

In its initial phase, the speed limit on the four-lane expressway is set at 80 kilometers per hour. In the second phase, it will be expanded to six lanes with the speed limit increased to 100 kilometers per hour.

The My Thuan-Can Tho Expressway will connect with the HCMC-Trung Luong, Trung Luong-My Thuan expressways, and the My Thuan 2 Bridge, forming a comprehensive expressway route from HCMC to Can Tho.

This development is expected to significantly reduce travel time between the two cities to around two hours, contributing to the socio-economic development of the Mekong Delta region.
