HCM CITY – The HCM City People’s Committee has sought clearance from the Ministry of Transport to invest in new transport works to smoothen traffic on its roads.

It plans to raise above ground the section of rail from Sài Gòn Railway Station to Bình Triệu Station in Bình Thạnh District and build a new rail route from Thủ Thiêm New Urban Area in District 2 to Long Thành International Airport in neighbouring Đồng Nai Province.

The section between Bình Triệu and Sài Gòn Railway Station, around 9.5km long, intersects many roads, creating traffic jams whenever a train passes since level crossing gates have to be shut.

These are also scenes of frequent accidents.

The city also wants to move the inland container depot system from inside the city to along the Đồng Nai River. – VNS
