HCM CITY— An underground road beneath An Sương intersection in HCM City’s District 12 will be built to reduce traffic congestion at the area.
The city’s Department of Transport has approved the project with investment from the Urban Transport Management Zone No 3 at a cost of VNĐ514 billion (US$22.9 million).
Around VNĐ130 billion ($5.8 million) of that amount will be used for site clearance and compensation.
The design includes two tunnels with a total length of 850m. Each tunnel will be 9m wide with two lanes.
Work on the construction is expected to start in the second quarter of this year and finish by the third quarter next year, according to the investor. --VNS
