HCM CITY — Construction of two roundabouts on a section of National Highway 1A in HCM City's western Binh Tan District began yesterday.
They are being built at the highway's intersection with Provincial Road 10 and Provincial Road 10B.
Also being built are a 20km barrier separating theanes meant for large and small vehicles, and two flyovers of 802m and 680m.
The IDICO infrastructure investment company is undertaking the VND700 billion (US$33 million) work on a build-operate-transfer basis.
The construction is expected to ease the flow of traffic between the city and the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta. — VNS
