HCMC’s Thu Duc City has sought approval to build two new roads and start construction of four already approved ones at a cost of VND30 trillion (US$1.2 billion).
On Thursday it petitioned the HCMC People’s Committee to adjust plans to allow construction of a new connecting D1 and Nguyen Xien Street at a cost of VND750 billion ($32 million).
If approved, construction could begin in 2024 and be completed in 2025.
It would ease the burden on Long Binh and Long Thanh My wards, which are thickly populated and rapidly developing with limited traffic infrastructure, Hoang Tung, chairman of the Thu Duc People’s Committee, said.
Existing roads there like Nguyen Van Tang and Nguyen Xien are already congested, and once a Vingroup housing project is completed in the area, its population would increase by 100,000, he added.
The other new road is a fourth link between the city and Ring Road 3 at Long Binh Ward. A fourth is required since the distance between the second and third is at over seven kilometers and the ward has a high urbanization rate, meaning more connectivity is needed.
The four roads already approved at a cost of VND30.05 trillion need to be built soon, Thu Duc authorities said.
They include the a Ring Road 2 section costing VND8.6 trillion and the Cat Lai-Phu Huu inter-port road costing VND8.5 trillion.
Tung said Thu Duc would turn Xuan Thuy into a walking-only street to utilize its nighttime food hub potential.
Phan Cong Bang, deputy director of the Department of Transport, agreed with the construction of the road connecting D1 and Nguyen Xien Street, but opposed the fourth link, saying the design of the ring road has been carefully considered, and such a proposal has already been shot down in the past.
