The metro project is expected to create a highlight for Ho Chi Minh city’s traffic.
The remainder will come from public-private partnerships and other sources.
The projects include the construction of Can Gio and Thu Thiem bridges, the expansion of National Highways 1 and 13, and elevated roads No. 1 and No. 5, among others.
Director of the municipal Transport Department Tran Quang Lam said the department will work closely with transport departments of provinces in the southern key economic region to submit a proposal asking the Transport Ministry to step up regional connectivity projects such as Cat Lai Bridge and expansion of Ho Chi Minh City – Long Thanh – Dau Giay Expressway.
In order to speed up the implementation of projects, the city People’s Committee was requested to direct Thu Duc city People’s Committee and People’s Committee of relevant districts to boost progress, complete compensation, support resettlement, hand over premises to investors, complete works, ensure progress, and promote investment efficiency of projects./.
