ĐỒNG NAI — Đồng Nai Province Department of Transportation has requested the Bến Thành - Suối Tiên metro railway be extended to Biên Hòa 1 Industrial Park.

The department has asked the Đồng Nai People’s Committee to propose to the Prime Minister an extension of Bến Thành - Suối Tiên railway all the way to Biên Hòa 1 Industrial Park in Biên Hòa City's An Bình Ward.

The metro railway was originally set to run from Suối Tiên Water Park HCM City's Thủ Đức City to Sặt Market Junction in Biên Hoà City's Tân Biên Ward.

Department officials said that if the metro line is extended to Biên Hòa 1 Industrial Park, it would mean that the line would connect to Biên Hòa city centre, thus improving the province's connectivity with HCM City.

The change also fits into the land development plan of the province.

Biên Hòa 1 Industrial Park is in the process of changing its function from industrial land to urban - commercial - service land.

The 300 hectares of the park will be divided into two parts. One part is used to build the provincial administrative centre and the other is to develop an urban - commercial - service area. — VNS.
