A US$800 million project is underway to build an overhead road over Binh Duong Avenue in southern Binh Duong Province near National Highway 13.
BINH DUONG –
The provincial People's Committee has assigned Investment and Industrial Development Corporation (Becamex IDC) as the project investor.
The two phase project is scheduled to start in 2012 and end in 2014.
This would be the first time an overhead road has been built in Viet Nam, according to the committee.
The road will be 31 kilometres in length and 18 metres in width, with four lanes connecting Thuan An Township and Ben Cat District.
According to experts, it would have a capacity of at least 50,000 vehicles per day, eight times higher than at present.
Chairman of the provincial committee Le Thanh Cung said the completion of the overhead road was expected to reduce the load and traffic jams on National Highway 13 as well as boost socio-economic development.
