HCMC – The Ministry of Transport has announced plans to kickstart 13 infrastructure projects next year, comprising a bridge and 12 roads, with a combined cost of VND30 trillion, or US$1.2 billion.

Local authorities will oversee the implementation of 10 of these projects. They include three sections of the Ho Chi Minh Road, two components of the National Highway 2 improvement project, and the upgrade of National Highway 46.

Projects such as National Highway 4B in Lang Son Province, the upgrade of National Highway 28B in Binh Thuan and Lam Dong provinces, and various projects in the Mekong Delta, like phase one of Cao Lanh-An Huu Expressway, phase one of My An-Cao Lanh Expressway, and the upgrade of national highways 53, 62 and Nam Song Hau will also be carried out.

The sole bridge project scheduled for next year is Ninh Cuong, which will span the Ninh Co River on National Highway 37B in Nam Dinh Province.

The Ministry of Transport will take charge of implementing the remaining three projects, which are Dau Giay-Tan Phu, Lo Te-Rach Soi, and Cho Moi-Bac Kan expressways.

This year, the Ministry of Transport put into operation several expressway projects, including 475 kilometers of the North-South Expressway Phase 1. These works increased the total length of expressway in the country to nearly 1,900 kilometers.

These projects are expected to enhance connectivity and reduce travel times between vital economic centers in Vietnam.
