QUẢNG NINH — The Vân Đồn-Móng Cái expressway in the northern province of Quảng Ninh will open to traffic on September 2, Việt Nam’s National Day.
Work on the 80-kilometer-long road began in April 2019, costing more than VNĐ11 trillion. The four-lane expressway will allow vehicles to travel at a maximum speed of 120 kilometres per hour.
The expressway will connect to the 300-km Hà Nội – Hạ Long Expressway and 264-km Nội Bài – Lào Cai Expressway to become the longest route in the country.
Travel time between Vân Đồn District and Móng Cái City will be reduced to 50 minutes instead of two hours.
