HCMC – The Ministry of Transport has announced that 15 intelligent traffic systems (ITS) will be built along the eastern North-South Expressway, with seven systems expected to be completed this year.

The project will help improve the management and operation of the expressway through the installation of ITS and vehicle load inspection systems. The Vietnam Expressway Authority said that the systems would be integrated seamlessly across the expressway to facilitate efficient traffic management.

According to the plan, each traffic control center will oversee a stretch of 70 to 100 kilometers of expressway. In the first phase, seven traffic control centers will manage 11 sections of the expressway, while the second phase will see eight more centers overseeing 12 sections.

The Transport Construction Investment Management Authority under the Ministry of Transport said that first-phase construction of traffic control centers is scheduled to start in June and expected to be completed by the end of 2024. The second phase of the ITS investment is anticipated to begin in September this year.
