HCMC – The Ministry of Transport is seeking the Government’s approval to upgrade three national highways in the Mekong Delta region.

According to the plan, the ministry will upgrade a 69-kilometer stretch of National Highway 62, commencing from Km 4 — the intersection with the HCMC-Trung Luong Expressway — to Km 74 in Long An Province.

For National Highway 53, the ministry proposed renovating Nga Tu Bridge and the 11-kilometer Long Ho-Ba Si section from Km 11 to Km 56, spanning Vinh Long and Tra Vinh provinces.

National Highway 91B is slated for an upgrade along a 141-kilometer section from Km 2 to Km 143, passing through Can Tho City, Hau Giang, Soc Trang, and Bac Lieu provinces.

These renovations aim to elevate the highways to level 3 plain road standards, featuring a width of 11 meters and two mixed-traffic lanes for automobiles and rudimentary vehicles.

Scheduled for implementation between 2024 and 2027, these road renovation projects need a total investment of over VND9,300 billion. Funding will be secured from the World Bank and reciprocal capital sources.
