HCMC – The Transport Ministry and Lam Dong and Dong Nai provinces are finalizing preparations to start work next year on the Dau Giay-Lien Khuong expressway.
The 200.3-kilometer-long expressway project includes three components, comprising the 60.1-kilometer-long Dau Giay-Tan Phu section costing VND8,365 billion, the 66-kilometer-long Tan Phu-Bao Loc section valued at VND16,220 billion and the 73.9-kilometer-long Bao Loc-Lien Khuong expressway worth VND12,000 billion.
The Transport Ministry is scheduled to begin work on the three sections in June of 2023.
The Dau Giay-Lien Khuong expressway is part of the master plan on the road network for the 2021-2030 period, with a vision toward 2050, as approved by the prime minister.
The expressway will shorten the driving time from HCMC to Dalat from six to three hours and HCMC-Bao Loc from four to two hours.
Lam Dong, at the same time, will expand its inner-city roads and Prenn Pass to meet the increasing number of visitors to Dalat City.
