HCM CITY – The HCM City’s People Committee has assigned the Department of Transport to manage and conduct research on and manage the planned expansion of a section of National Highway No 50.
The 8km section is located in the city’s Bình Chánh District and links to Long An and Tiền Giang provinces.
The highway will be widened from two to four lanes during the first phase of the project and to six lanes in the second phase.
In 2010, the Ministry of Transport decided to expand National Highway No 50 in HCM City and Long An and Tiền Giang provinces.
The expansion was completed in Long An and Tiền Giang the following year, but was not implemented in HCM City because of slow progress in land clearance compensation in Bình Chánh District.
The Ministry of Transport has transferred the management of the road expansion to HCM City. — VNS
