HCM City (VNA) - The Transport Engineering Design Incorporated (TEDI) has proposed a transport connection project between HCM City and seven other provinces and cities.

The seven provinces and cities include Binh Duong, Binh Phuoc, Tien Giang, Long An, Tay Ninh, Dong Nai and Ba Ria-Vung Tau.

The TEDI said that HCM City was the focus of the southern major economic zone, so it should be connected to different provinces and cities to ensure convenient transport.

TEDI has set out a system of nine main urban roads and five flyovers which were necessary for the city’s transport development.

TEDI proposed connecting the city’s main roads with provinces and cities, such as connecting Ring road 2 in Thu Duc district with Ring road 3 in the southern province of Tien Giang’s Go Cong district. The connecting road will span the Dong Nai River and join Highway 20. The connection will aim at connecting the HCM City-Long Thanh-Dau Giay Highway with Highway 1 in the southern province of Dong Nai.

Also under the proposal, the HCM City-Moc Bai Highway will be adjusted in the direction of HCM City to Tay Ninh southern province and will extend to the Xa Mat Border Gate in Tay Ninh province.

With regards to the waterway system, TEDI proposed to set up a connection between the Vam Co River to the Cai Mep-Thi Vai Port in Ba Ria-Vung Tau province and from the Dong Nai River to the Thi Vai River.

More areas will be set up to collect goods and transport to big ports.

With the railway system, TEDI proposed to supplement the connection between the Binh Trieu Station with the Sai Gon-Can Tho route.

Contributing ideas to the project, the Dong Nai Department of Transport said that a connection should be set up from Highway 51 to the Dong Nai River.

The Binh Duong Department of Transport said that the 24.5-kilometre Ring road 3 passing the province should be built.

Leaders of the HCM City Department of Transport said that the department would collaborate with departments of transport in different provinces and cities to build connection roads.-VNA
