The investment program will construct 11.7 kilometers of dual track mass rapid transit (MRT) line in Ho Chi Minh City from Ben Thanh to Tham Luong, including a depot at Tham Luong, to support the local economic development in HCMC by initiating the first stage of a MRT system.
The expected impact of the investment program will be the establishment of an integrated sustainable urban transport system in project districts. The outcome is to provide competitive public transport along the project corridor. The resultant slowing of growth in the number of private vehicles on city roads will improve the urban environment, reducing accidents and air and noise pollution and making the urban environment more pedestrian friendly. The investment program also supports HCMC's climate change mitigation efforts by adopting a low-carbon transport growth path and encouraging a substantive modal shift from private vehicles to public transport, which is more energy efficient and emits less greenhouse gas.
