HCM CITY (VNS) — The HCM City People's Committee has instructed the Department of Transport to consider a proposal to upgrade a section of the National Highway No 1 A between the Tan Kien Intersection in Binh Chanh District and the Long An Province border.

The proposal by the Infrastructure Development and Investment Joint Stock Company (IDICO) includes widening of the 8.2km section from 25m to 38.2 m, the same as the section of the highway between the Station 2 Intersection (in Thu Duc District) and Tan Kien.

The section has eight lanes with separators between them, and pavements measuring 3 to 4 metres wide on either side.

IDICO will arrange an estimated VND750 billion (US$34.4 million) for the work, which will be carried out under the BOT (build – operate – transfer) mode, according to Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper. — VNS
