The upgrade will cover a length of 22.38km under the (BOT) build-operate-transfer model and will cost VND1, 752 billion.

The National Highway No.60 plays a significant role in the development of the Mekong Delta region. The upgrade is expected to cut time to travel from Tien Giang to Ben Tre, Tra Vinh and Soc Trang and ease traffic pressure here.

The project will be divided into four sections and is expected to be completed in 26 months.
