Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh on February 26 gave the order to launch the construction of a road connecting Hoa Binh northern province and capital Hanoi and an expressway from Hoa Binh to Moc Chau district in neighbouring Son La province.
The road has a length of about 50 kilometres, with a total investment of more than 4.12 trillion VND (173.14 million USD). It is scheduled to open to traffic in 2027.
According to the Hoa Binh provincial People’s Committee, so far, the province has completed the mapping of the whole road and handed over the grounds in some parts of the project to contractors.
Speaking at the launching ceremony, PM chinh lauded Hoa Binh's efforts in expanding its transport infrastructure system with the construction of this road.
However, he held that the cost of the project is high, while its implementation time of five years is too long. He asked the province, investors and contractors to reconsider the design of the road to ensure it meets the standards of an expressway. They were also requested to shorten the time of construction by speeding up site clearance.
He called for local residents' support to the implementation of the project, and asked the local Party Committee and administration to show strong performance in compensation and resettlement for the affected community.
