2.7-km stretch to complete Ring Road 2.
Construction of a 2.7-km long road costing VND1.134 trillion ($50.8 million) connecting Pham Van Dong Boulevard and the Go Dua intersection on National Highway No. 1 in Ho Chi Minh City has been approved by the City’s Department of Transport, with construction to be in the build-transfer (BT) form and conducted from 2015 to 2017.
The road will complete Ring Road 2, connecting main traffic routes in the city and reducing traffic density along arterial roads.
In the first phase two roads running parallel to each side of the main road (to be built in the second phase) will be built with three lanes each. Three bridges will also be constructed (Rach Lung Bridge, Rach Ong Viet Bridge, and Rach Go Cat Gridge), with each being approximately 80 meters long. Additional works will also be built, such as drainage systems and lighting.
The main road, built in the second phase, will have eight lanes.
The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee approved the project’s feasibility study on October 20.
