HCMC – The Ministry of Transport has urged the Railway Project Management Board, the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV), and Transport Engineering Design Incorporated (TEDI) to prepare plans for developing rail links to the under-construction Long Thanh International Airport.

Long Thanh airport, currently in its initial construction phase, is expected to become a pivotal international air transit hub in the region, according to the ministry.

The North-South express railway and the Thu Thiem – Long Thanh light rail are progressing in their pre-feasibility study stages, with plans for underground stations at Long Thanh airport.

The Thu Thiem – Long Thanh light rail line, which is 37 kilometers long and has 20 stations, will link Thu Thiem Station in Thu Duc City of HCMC, and Long Thanh International Airport Station.

With a 1,435-mm double track, the 1,545-kilometer North-South high-speed railway will extend from Ngoc Hoi Station in Hanoi City to Thu Thiem Station in HCMC.
