The transport sector will kick off the construction of 35 major projects and complete 58 others in 2014, according to the Ministry of Transport.

To this end, the ministry will urge investors to speed up ongoing projects, especially key ones such as the upgrading and expansion of National Highway 1 and Ho Chi Minh Highway’s section running through the Central Highlands region, and Noi Bai-Lao Cai, Hanoi-Hai Phong, Da Nang-Quang Ngai, and Ho Chi Minh City-Long Thanh-Dau Giay highways.

At the same time, more investment will be poured in Dau Giay-Phan Thiet and Ninh Binh-Bai Vot highways, and Long Thanh, Tan Son Nhat and Cam Ranh international airports.
The sector will strive to effectively use investment sourced from the State budget, the official development assistance, preferential loans and other resources.

Last year, the ministry launched 78 projects and completed 46 others, helping upgrade and build more than 800 kilometres of national highways, nearly 4,000 metres of footbridges and over 1,000 metres of rail bridges.-VNA
