HA NOI (VNS) — The People's Committee of HCM City has asked the Ministry of Transport to select just one investor instead of two for upgrading the National Highway No. 22 under Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT).
The highway, also named as Trans-Asia Road, stretching over 58 kilometres, is the arterial road connecting HCM City, Tay Ninh, and provinces in the south-east region and Cambodia.
The committee said that only one investor should implement the project, because if they choose two, there would be two toll stations within the 58km stretch.
"It is unreasonable for road users," the committee said.
The committee asked the ministry to allow them to call for investments for the project.
The upgrade plans emerged after traffic jams often occurred during rush hour on several stretches of the national highways due to an increasing number of vehicles, especially on the stretch linking An Suong and Cu Chi Flyover. — VNS
