By 2050 Vietnam’s expressway network will extend for a total of 9,014km, featuring 41 major routes. Of these expressways, 14 will be in Vietnam’s Northern region and will extend for a total of 2,305km.
Ho Chi Min City will feature two major expressways that will measure a total of 295km and will have from two to four lanes in either direction. Meanwhile, Hanoi will have three expressway routes that will extend for a total of 425km.
