HCM CITY — The HCM City Department of Transport has sought approval from the municipal People’s Committee for three transport infrastructure works to be undertaken in build-transfer mode.
The works, including upgrades to Nguyễn Duy Trinh Street and dredging of the Tắt River in District 9 and widening of Trần Đại Nghĩa Street in Bình Thạnh District, are budgeted to cost VNĐ 6.6 trillion (US$290 million).
The District 9 works are expected to ease traffic congestion near Cát Lái Port and connect ports in districts 9 and Thủ Đức.
With an expected cost of some VNĐ4.7 trillion ($206 million), the widening of Trần Đại Nghĩa Street is expected to unclog Provincial Road 10 by sharing some of its traffic.
According to the department, feasibility reports have been done for these projects. — VNS
