Viet Nam: Ho Chi Minh City-Long Thanh-Dau Giay Expressway Construction Project

Sovereign Project | 40198-023

Summary

The Ho Chi Minh City Long Thanh Dau Giay Expressway (HLD expressway) Project comprises construction of approximately 51 kilometers of four-lane, tolled expressway. The expressway will commence at the junction of the Second Ring Road in District 9, Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), and end at a junction with National Highway 1 at Dau Giay, Dong Nai Province. It will provide a direct connection from the center of HCMC to economic growth areas in provinces to the north of HCMC along National Highway 1, which connects HCMC to Hanoi. The expressway will be a toll road, with access initially restricted to three locations: the intersection with the Second Ring Road, the intersection with National Highway 51 at the southern end of Long Thanh town, and at Dau Giay. The Project includes construction of a major new 1,700-meter bridge over the Dong Nai River at Long Thanh, and two rest and service areas.

Description The Ho Chi Minh City Long Thanh Dau Giay Expressway (HLD expressway) Project comprises construction of approximately 51 kilometers of four-lane, tolled expressway.

The Project includes construction of a major new 1,700-meter bridge over the Dong Nai River at Long Thanh, and two rest and service areas.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The Government's Socio-Economic Development Plan for 2006- 2010 identifies the need for a network of high-capacity, high-speed expressways to complement the network of national, provincial, and city roads. Under the Government's Expressway Master Plan, developed with Asian Development Bank (ADB) funding under technical assistance for the Expressway Network Development Plan Project approved in 2005, a short-term program of priority expressway projects was identified. This program includes the HLD expressway.

Greater HCMC is the largest city in Viet Nam and the country''s economic hub. However, the road network both within and around HCMC is becoming heavily congested, travel speeds are decreasing, and transport costs increasing. Relief to city roads connecting the center of HCMC and the port area with roads leading north from the city to central and northern Viet Nam is urgently needed. HCMC also lies at a critical junction on the transport network for the Greater Mekong Subregion.

Impact Business-led, pro-poor, and sustainable economic growth in HCMC and neighboring provinces.
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome Transport users in HCMC and Dong Nai Province can travel from HCMC District 9 to Dau Giay with lower road user costs (vehicle operating costs plus travel time costs) on the HLD expressway
Progress Toward Outcome VEC has been requested to establish baseline data.
