Viet Nam Expressway Corporation (VEC) officially opened for traffic in the section connecting between An Phu Intersection in HCMC’s District 2 and Belt Road No.2 leading to the HCMC-Long Thanh-Dau Giay expressway yesterday before allowing vehicles to be able to use the expressway next month.
The 26, 5-meter-wide road section was designed for vehicles following urban station standards with maximum speed of 80 kilometers an hour, including four lanes for vehicles and two emergency lanes.
According to Viet Nam Expressway Corporation, HCMC-Long Thanh-Dau Giay Expressway connects with East West Highway, a major road section for city’s traffic, aiming to contribute to decrease vehicles and shorten the distance from Ho Chi Minh City to neighboring provinces and cities.
Viet Nam Expressway Corporation said that HCMC -Long Thanh-Dau Giay Expressway will be opened for traffic before Lunar New Year 2015.
