HCMC – The Ho Chi Minh Road Project Management Board has announced that construction of a section of the Ho Chi Minh Road in southern Vietnam will soon commence following the selection of a contractor.

Deo Ca Group, which won the XL1 contract, is responsible for constructing the 73km section connecting Chon Thanh in Binh Phuoc Province and Duc Hoa in Long An Province through Binh Duong and Tay Ninh provinces.

The contract includes building six bridges along the section. The contract is valued at VND6.8 trillion and expected to be completed within 730 days.

A representative from the Ho Chi Minh Road Project Management Board said that they are currently seeking approval from the relevant authorities for the selection of contractors for the remaining two contract packages, XL2 and XL3. It is anticipated that this process will be completed by the end of the year.

Work on the Chon Thanh-Duc Hoa section began in 2009 but was suspended in 2011 due to the Government’s shift in priorities towards curbing inflation and stabilizing the macroeconomy to ensure social welfare.

The first phase of the section will have two lanes with a width of 11 meters. Later, it will be expanded to six lanes. The project requires approximately VND2.3 trillion.

The resumption of this project aims to ensure the seamless connection of the entire Ho Chi Minh Road. This will contribute to reducing traffic congestion on the vertical axis of the southeastern region.
