Nhan Dan – Construction of the Mai Dich – Nam Thang Long elevated highway, part of Hanoi’s third ring road, will begin in December 2015, with a total investment of nearly VND6.2 trillion (US$297.6 million), according to the project owner.
The six-kilometre section of highway begins at Km0+558, south of the Mai Dich flyover and ends at Km5+493, south of the Thang Long Bridge.
