Thanh Thủy -

Total investment estimated at $13.7 million.

Ho Chi Minh City plans to invest VND350 billion ($13.7 million) to renovate and upgrade roads, constructing pedestrian bridges, and installing traffic lights at 76 intersections to enhance traffic safety through 2026.

The plan has been approved by the municipal People’s Council.

The capital for the project will be sourced from the city’s budget.

Under the plan, the city will renovate a section of National Highway 50 and a section of Road No. 15, build two pedestrian bridges in Thu Duc city and Cu Chi district and construct a road leading to Kenh Te Bridge in District 7.

The project is aimed at improving traffic on streets that are at high risks of congestion and accidents, ensuring traffic safety and facilitating travel and cargo transport for local residents.

Construction is scheduled to start in 2025 and complete in 2026.
