He was speaking while visiting the route site and listening to reports of the execution units about the work progress on Saturday.
He said that as soon as any section of the ring road is complete, it would be opened to ease the traffic overload for the surrounding areas.
By the end of the first quarter of the year is the deadline Chairman Quan set for completion of site clearance in districts.
As of now, only Binh Thanh has finished handing over the site of the road construction. Go Vap and Thu Duc are only half way through.
Good architectural works along the side of the road play a significant role in creating the city’s appearance. With this in mind, Quan instructed relevant departments not to build very slim houses.
The 13.7 kilometer Tan Son Nhat – Binh Loi highway forms the city’s outer ring road. The highway starts at Truong Son Road near Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Tan Binh District and ends at the Linh Xuan crossroad in Thu Duc District.
The highway will link the east and west parts of the city and will conveniently connect the airport and seaports with industrial zones, contributing in reducing traffic congestion within the city.
