ĐỒNG NAI — Construction of a flyover at the intersection of National Highways 1A and 20 in Dầu Giây in Đồng Nai Province’s Thống Nhất District began on Sunday.
It is being built as part of an upgrade to National Highway 20, including widening of a 1.5km section at the intersection.
The flyover will be 346m long and 16m wide and have four lanes.
The 1.5km section will be widened to 20.5m wide with four lanes for motor vehicles and two for non-motorised ones, drainage and urban lighting.
The work, to cost nearly VNĐ300 billion (US$13.4 million), is being carried out by the BT20-Cửu Long JSC.
Dầu Giây is a key intersection from where National Highway 20 goes to Central Highlands (Tây Nguyên) provinces and National Highway 1A and Provincial Road 769 to the Southern Key Economic Zone.
The construction would promote urban development in Thống Nhất District and reduce congestion and accidents in the area, Trần Văn Vĩnh, deputy chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said. — VNS
