ĐỒNG NAI – The southern province of Đồng Nai plans to build or widen three roads linking the under-construction Long Thành International Airport at a cost of VNĐ19.6 trillion (US$858 million).
Provincial Roads 770B and 769 will be upgraded and extended and a new road will be built from industrial parks to Cái Mép – Thị Vãi Port passing through the airport.
The 53-km 770B will be widened to have eight lanes and connect Định Quán, Thống Nhất and Cẩm Mỹ districts and Long Khánh Town with the airport, and its construction has begun.
The proposed new road, besides improving airport connectivity, will also enable transport of goods from industrial parks to Cái Mép – Thị Vãi Port, and also ease the load on the crowded National Highway 20 and Provincial Road 769, especially in Dầu Giây Town.
It is estimated to cost VNĐ12.5 trillion, including VNĐ7.5 trillion to acquire lands and relocate people.
Provincial Road 773 will be extended and widened to more than 51km and six to eight lanes at a cost of VNĐ5.5 trillion and connect Xuân Lộc and Cẩm Mỹ districts with the airport.
According to the provincial Department of Transport, the three will be among those prioritised in the next five years.
The need for road connectivity in Đồng Nai Province has become urgent since the airport will open in 2025.
Work to acquire lands, draw up feasibility reports and organise bids to choose contractors for the three projects is underway so that construction could begin in early 2023.
Long Thành International Airport is designed to have a capacity of 100 million passengers and five million tonnes of cargo a year by 2040. – VnExpress News
