HCM CITY — Construction of the 9.4km-long Road 319, which will improve goods transport between industrial parks in Đồng Nai Province and HCM City, is expected to be completed by the end of this month after nearly four years of construction.

The road is being built under the build-operate-transfer (BOT) form with a total investment of more than VNĐ960 billion (US$41.7 million).

It starts at Phước Thiền Commune in the southern province’s Nhơn Trạch District, and ends at an intersection at the HCM City-Long Thành-Dầu Giây Expressway between Đồng Nai and HCM City.

It will have four lanes, including four new bridges and an overpass. A 6-booth BOT toll station is being built for toll fee collection.

When completed, the route will help shorten travel time from Nhơn Trạch to the city, and ease traffic pressure on National Highway No 51 which is becoming overcrowded.

Congestion has become increasingly worse on both the HCM City-Long Thành-Dầu Giây Expressway and the section of National Highway No 51 to HCM City during peak hours and holidays.

The Ministry of Transport has approved widening a 24km section of the HCM City-Long Thành-Dầu Giây Expressway to 10 lanes from its current four lanes.

The section running from HCM City’s District 2 to Long Thành Town in Đồng Nai will be widened and completed by 2030. 

The widening will ease traffic flows when the ongoing Long Thành International Airport in Đồng Nai opens by 2025.

Đồng Nai will build four routes leading to the airport, aiming to ease overloading on national highways No 1A and No 20, and the Dầu Giây intersection.

It also plans to expand and upgrade seven routes in order to facilitate the transport of goods among 32 industrial parks in the province. — VNS
