HÀ NỘI — Construction on three component projects of the North-South Expressway are scheduled to begin on September 30.
The components projects, covering the sections of Mai Sơn-National Highway 45, Vĩnh Hào-Phan Thiết, and Phan Thiết-Dầu Giây, have been transformed from the public-private-partnership (PPP) form to the public investment model.
The expressway is set to have a total length of 1,811km, connecting Hà Nội and the Mekong Delta city of Cần Thơ.
The eastern North-South expressway project includes 11 sub-projects with a total length of 654km running through 13 cities and provinces.
The 11 sub-projects are estimated to cost a total of VNĐ118 trillion (US$5.04 billion), including VNĐ55 trillion in State capital in three public investment projects, and counterpart funds for the other eight projects.
Once completed, it is expected to become a backbone connecting the entire country. — VNS
