HCM CITY (VNS) — A 20-km section of an expressway being built to link HCM City with a proposed international airport in the neighbouring province of Dong Nai will open to traffic later this month, the builder has said.

Le Manh Hung, head of the HCM City - Long Thanh - Dau Giay Project, said a section linking the Eastern Ring Road (or the Second Ring Road) in HCM City's District 9 with National Highway 51 in Dong Nai would be usable from December 28.

The expressway will be 55 km long in all, connecting HCM City with Long Thanh International Airport, and cost around VND18 trillion (about US$1.2 billion).

It is expected to ease congestion on National Highway 1A.

Construction of the highway began in December 2009 and is scheduled for completion in early 2015.

It is being built by the Viet Nam Expressway Company while the construction work is being overseen by the HCM City - Long Thanh - Dau Giay Project.

The Ministry of Transport is also expected to start construction of the airport before 2015. — VNS
