Major road works are planned for Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City in a bid to help reduce the city’s chronic traffic congestion issues. The plan is for a new elevated road to be constructed that will link Tan Binh District with District 7.

The project is expected to cost US$1.3 billion and the 14km road will feature two lanes in either direction. The work will be handled under the PPP model and is intended to reduce journey times for commuters in Vietnam’s largest city.

The new elevated road stretch will connect with the existing No1, No2 and No3 elevated roads as well as Ring Road No2 and Tan Son Nhat International Airport.
