The construction of the second phase of belt road No. 3, the Mai Dich-northern Linh Dam Lake section, will begin in April.
The road, which is the first urban highway in the country, stretches 9-km long and has a speed limit of 100km per hour.
The expressway will be built at a height of over 6 meters with total investment of more than VND5.547 trillion (US$277 million).
It is the capital’s first traffic development project to be carried out without displacing residents through site clearance.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2012.
