Ba Ria-Vung Tau to build $53M ring expressway


Seaport hub Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province will spend VND1.25 trillion ($53 million) building an expressway to link with industrial hub Dong Nai and a regional ring road.

A resolution approved Saturday by the legislative provincial People’s Council allocated the sum for land clearance to make way for two massive projects.

The Bien Hoa – Vung Tau Expressway project will use VND750 billion to create space for the road, while the rest of the funding will go towards clearing obstacles to Ho Chi Minh City Ring Road No.4.

Stretching almost 54km (33 miles), The Bien Hoa – Vung Tau Expressway will connect the southern industrial province of Dong Nai to Ba Ria – Vung Tau, which is home to several seaport logistics complexes. It will span 19.5 kilometers in Ba Ria – Vung Tau.

The expressway will cost around VND17.8 trillion in public funds and be completed by 2025, according to official statements.

The section running through the tourist-friendly coastal province is estimated to cost VND5.19 trillion, including VND1.33 trillion for site clearance.

Dong Nai agreed in May to spend VND2.6 trillion ($111.5 million) clearing the way for the expressway, or half the cost needed for site clearance in that province.

The state budget will cover the remaining funding for site clearance in both Dong Nai and Ba Ria – Vung Tau.

In its first phase, the Bien Hoa – Vung Tau Expressway will have four to six lanes and allow vehicles to travel at 100 kph.

Once completed, it will ease the pressure on National Highway 51, which is currently the main route linking the two localities.

Approved final plans for Ring Road No. 4 call for six to eight lanes to connect Ba Ria – Vung Tau with the southern region of Vietnam’s major industrial hubs: HCMC and the provinces of Binh Duong, Dong Nai and Long An.

Costing VND100 trillion, it will span 18 kilometers in Ba Ria – Vung Tau, 45 kilometers in Dong Nai, 71 kilometers from Long An’s Ben Luc Town to Hiep Phuoc Port complex in HCMC’s Nha Be District, 17 kilometers in HCMC and 49 kilometers in Binh Duong.

An investor will be chosen in mid-2024 to start work that year.

Construction will last three years and the road will open to traffic in the first quarter of 2028.

The Ba Ria – Vung Tau section is expected to cost more than VND6.6 trillion.
