Dong Nai Province’s People’s Committee met last week with departments, agencies and localities to discuss details about the new inter-regional road project which will be about 45km long and 40m wide.

The road will begin from Belt Ring Road No 3 in District 9, go through National No 51, Dau Day-Long Thanh Intersection and National No 1, and end at inter-provincial road No 769 in Dong Nai Province.

Tran Van Vinh, deputy chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said the new inter-regional road project would relieve traffic pressure on Dong Nai Bridge and the HCM City-Long Thanh-Dau Giay Expressway.

After completion, the road is expected to meet transport demand between HCM City and Dong Nai Province and serve the Long Thanh International Airport in the future.

The province will continue to work with HCM City on the construction time and investment form before submitting a detailed plan to the Ministry of Transport for approval.

HCM City and Dong Nai are among eight localities in the Southern Key Economic Zone. A more effective transport network and closer regional linkages could boost economic growth in the region.
