HCM CITY — Nguyễn Thi Định Road from Mỹ Thủy Intersection to Cát Lái Port in HCM City will be widened to reduce traffic jams in the area.
The estimated investment for a 1.9km stretch of the road is VNĐ1.44 trillion (US$63.3 million), of which VNĐ850 billion (US$34 million) will be spent on clearing the land.
The area from Mỹ Thủy Intersection to Cát Lái Port sees a great deal of traffic from container trucks every day, which causes terrible congestion.
The city has adopted several measures to reduce traffic jams in the area, such as traffic divergence and building up intersections.
The road widening effort will help improve the traffic situation.
The investor, the Urban Traffic Management Centre No 2, said the project had been approved by the city’s council in 2016.
The road will be widened to 60m, with six lanes for cars, and four lanes for mixed vehicles. — VNS
