NDO/VNA – Construction on three component projects of the North-South Expressway are scheduled to begin on September 30.

The components projects, covering the sections of Mai Son-National Highway 45, Vinh Hao-Phan Thiet, and Phan Thiet-Dau Giay, have been transformed from the public-private-partnership (PPP) form to the public investment model.

The expressway is set to have a total length of 1,811km, connecting Hanoi and the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho.

The eastern North-South expressway project includes 11 sub-projects with a total length of 654km running through 13 cities and provinces.

The 11 sub-projects are estimated to cost a total of VND118 trillion (US$5.04 billion), including VND55 trillion in State capital in three public investment projects, and counterpart funds for the other eight projects.

Once completed, it is expected to become a backbone connecting the entire country.
