HCMC – After two months of temporary use, the Ministry of Transport today, October 18, officially inaugurated two sections of the North-South Expressway in the north-central provinces of Thanh Hoa and Nghe An.

In Thanh Hoa Province, the 43-kilometer National Highway 45-Nghi Son Expressway passes through Nong Cong District and Nghi Son Township, and has a total investment cost of VND5.5 trillion.

The Nghi Son-Dien Chau Expressway, connecting Thanh Hoa and Nghe An provinces, is linked to the National Highway 45-Nghi Son Expressway. The project cost is VND7.3 trillion.

The National Highway 45-Nghi Son and Nghi Son-Dien Chau expressways reduce travel time between Thanh Hoa and Nghe An to 1.5 hours.

These two roads also connect to the Mai Son-National Highway 45 Expressway which links Ninh Binh and Thanh Hoa provinces, and other sections of the North-South Expressway, forming a 251-kilometer road that reduces travel time between Hanoi and Nghe An to 3.5 hours.

Tolls have yet to be collected for these expressway sections.

In the first phase, the four-lane expressways have a maximum speed of 80 kilometers per hour. Once fully completed, the roads will have six lanes with a maximum speed of 100-120 kilometers per hour.
