HCMC – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has given the green light to the Ministry of Transport to implement the first phase of the Bien Hoa-Vung Tau expressway project, which will stretch from Bien Hoa City in Dong Nai Province to Ba Ria City in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, under the public-private partnership format.
The ministry was told to collect feedback for the project from the relevant agencies, revise the project’s pre-feasibility study, which was created by the provincial government of Ba Ria-Vung Tau, and present the prime minister with a decision to invest in the project, in line with prevailing regulations.
The expressway will have a total length of 53.7 kilometers, including a 34.2-kilometer section passing through Dong Nai and a 19.5-kilometer section in Ba Ria-Vung Tau.
The project requires a total investment of more than VND19 trillion, with some VND6.6 trillion from the State budget and the remaining amount from other legal sources.
Further, some 588.5 hectares of land is required to build the road. After the investment for the project is approved by the prime minister, the two provinces will jointly work on site clearance and compensation policies and submit them to PM Phuc for approval.
