North-South Expressway to have 6-10 lanes

VGP – PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc has tasked the Ministry of Transport to mull over the expansion of the North-South Expressway scope to 6-10 lanes in accordance with Viet Nam’s development situation.

The Government will set aside VND 55 trillion for this public-private partnership project scheduled to complete by 2030, according to the Government Office.

The Ministry of Transport is responsible for designing component projects for implementation right after the approval of the National Assembly.
