HCM CITY — The HCM City Department of Transport is speeding up the deployment of construction investment in 16 key intersections to reduce traffic jams in the inner city.

The department has proposed that the municipal People's Committee approve investment policies of these projects to complete them in the 2022-25 period.

Among them, the VNĐ480 billion (US$20.4 million) project of building an intersection between National Highway No. 1A section and Nguyễn Văn Quá Street in District 12 has completed investment procedures.

The department has urged the Department of Planning and Investment to review procedures for supplementing public investment capital to soon start construction of this project.

Five intersections have been approved for public investment, including Linh Xuân and Nguyễn Thị Định - Nguyễn Duy Trinh intersections in Thủ Đức City, Ngọc Hầu - Hương lộ 2 - Lê Văn Quới intersection in Bình Tân and Tân Phú districts, and Điện Biên Phủ - Ngô Gia Tự - Lý Thái Tổ - Lê Hồng Phong and Nguyễn Tri Phương - Ngô Gia Tự - Nguyễn Chí Thanh intersections in District 10.

For the remaining 10 projects, which have not yet been approved, the department has proposed to include them in the city’s medium-term public investment plan by 2025 and this year’s public investment plan.

They are the intersection of National Highway No. 1A section and Vườn Lài Street and Bà Điểm intersection in District 12, Nguyễn Kiệm-Phan Đăng Lưu intersection in Phú Nhuận District, and Hà Nội Highway - Võ Văn Ngân - Lê Anh Kiệt intersection in Thủ Đức City.

Đài Liệt Sĩ intersection in Bình Thạnh District, Hòa Bình -Lạc Long Quân and Lý Thường Kiệt-Ba Tháng Hai intersections in District 11, Nguyễn Oanh - Phan Văn Trị intersection in Gò Vấp District, Hoàng Văn Thụ - Nguyễn Văn Trỗi intersection in Tân Bình District, and Lạc Long Quân - Âu Cơ intersection in Tân Phú District are also included. — VNS
