If weather permits, the project will be completed by the end of the year following total investment of VND270 billion or US$11.7 million.

The project is set to offer favourable conditions which will serve to reduce traffic, shorten journeys, and synchronise the region’s road network. In addition, it will maximise the investment efficiency of Ring Road No. 3, the Hanoi - Hai Phong expressway, and Co Linh Road in Long Bien District of Hanoi, whilst also helping reduce traffic congestion, as well as promoting greater socio-economic development for both northern cities.

The elevated car-only section of Ring Road No. 2 between the Nga Tu So intersection to the Vinh Tuy Bridge opened to traffic on November 9.

The Hoang Quoc Viet-Nguyen Van Huyen flyover, which opened to traffic on August 28, aims to ease congestion at the intersection along Hoang Quoc Viet Street, thereby serving local socio-economic development. Costing around VND560 billion (US$24.34 million), with funding being sourced from the capital’s budget, the project took over 10 months to complete. The 278-metre flyover features four lanes for motorised vehicles, while at ground-level there are six mixed vehicle lanes.
