HCMC – HCMC will break ground on three key traffic infrastructure projects by the end of this year to ease
HCMC – HCMC looks set to either break ground on or complete multiple major traffic infrastructure projects this year, according to the municipal Department of Transport.
The city’s first metro line, which connects Ben Thanh Market in District 1 and Suoi Tien Theme Park in Thu Duc City, will be put on a trial run in late December.
The city will complete four key roads in the Thu Thiem New Area, Luong Dinh Cua Street, Provincial Road 8 and the underpass at the intersection of Nguyen Van Linh and Nguyen Huu Tho streets.
HCMC is determined to expedite work on the An Phu Intersection in Thu Duc City, a road connecting Tran Quoc Hoan and Cong Hoa streets in Tan Binh District, and the expansion of a National Highway 50 section in Binh Chanh District this year.
The Vam Sat bridge project in the city’s outlying district of Can Gio and the Long Kieng bridge project in Nha Be District will be completed this year, the local media reported.
The city will speed up site clearance to resume the construction of Nam Ly, Tang Long and Long Dai bridges in Thu Duc City. These bridge projects have been put on halt for years due to land clearance delays.
The Beltway No. 3 project will get off the ground in June, while the city will start work on the relocation of technical infrastructure for the Ben Thanh-Tham Luong metro line.
Among other key projects to get off the ground this year are HCMC-Moc Bai and HCMC-Chon Thanh expressways.
