The 247km-long road runs from Quy Nhon City in the central coastal province of Binh Dinh to the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai, and links national highways No 24 and No 25. The upgrade aims to boost logistics and transport along the East-West Economic Corridor. The work’s estimated cost is VND3, 654 (US$158.5 million) coming from the World Bank loans and the rest from the Government.

The four-lane 39km-long eastern belt road runs through districts of Cu M’gar, Cu Kuin, Krong Pak and Buon Ma Thuot City in the central highlands province of Dak Lak. The road will start at the Km0+00 in Cu M’gar District’s Cuor Dang Commune and end at the Km39+606.77 in Buon Ma Thuot City’s Hoa Phu Commune. The total investment capital costs more than VND1, 500 billion (US$65 million). The project is expected to be completed in 2023 and reduce traffic pressure on the National Road 14.
