Work is progressing in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City for construction of the new Beltway No3. An additional US$128.6 million is being set aside from the city’s budget to speed up work on the highway. The new beltway will measure 90km long, will allow vehicle speeds of up to 100km/h, with from two to four lanes in either direction. The route is being built in four sections. One stretch connects the Trung Luong expressway and National Highway No 22, another links National Highway No 22 and Binh Chuan, one joins Tan Van and My Phuoc and the last connects Ho CHi Minh City and Nhon Trach.
