HCMC – Five major roads in HCMC’s District 9, including Do Xuan Hop, Nguyen Duy Trinh, La Xuan Oai, Le Van Viet and Lo Lu, are scheduled for an upgrade and expansion in the 2021-2025 period to meet the demand for growth in Thu Duc City in the years to come.
The five roads in the eastern part of the city often face traffic congestion during rush hour and get flooded in the rainy season, thus affecting the daily activities of local residents.
Moreover, container trucks frequently travel on these narrow roads, leading to many accidents, locals told VnExpress.
Expansion capital for Do Xuan Hop, Le Van Viet and Nguyen Duy Trinh is being adjusted. To widen La Xuan Oai and Lo Lu streets, investments of over VND99 billion and VND572 million will be needed, respectively.
After being expanded and renovated, the infrastructure of the roads is expected to be in line with the HCMC-Long Thanh Expressway, the Hanoi Highway and HCMC’s first metro line running from Ben Thanh Market in District 1 to Suoi Tien Theme Park in District 9.
