Tran Van Giau street project comprises two member projects including interprovincial roads 10 and 10B.
Road 10, 7.9 kilometers, had been built with four lanes at a total capital of VND1 trillion (US$44.36). Road 10B, 5.83 kilometers, has six lanes built at VND551 billion (US$24.44 million).
Deputy Director of the Transport Department Nguyen Van Tam said that Tran Van Giau street contributes in improving the traffic network linking HCMC up to Long An province and developing socioeconomics in western HCMC, and serves construction and exploitation of industrial parks namely Tan Tao, Le Minh Xuan and Vinh Loc.
The project was previously scheduled to complete in 2010 but site clearance difficulties have lengthened its progress.
