Central expressway section to open in August

QUANG NAM (Vietnam News) -- The Vietnam Expressway Corporation (VEC) will put the first 65km road section of the 140km Da Nang-Quang Ngai Expressway into operation on August 2.

This is the first expressway in the central and central highlands region.

A VEC official told Vietnam News that the first stage of the project the 65km section from Túy Loan in Da Nang City to the capital of Quang Nam Province, Tam Ky City, has been completed.

The four-lane section with two emergency lanes will allow vehicles to travel at 120km per hour, reducing travel time between Da Nang and Quang Ngai Province.

VEC's General Director Mai Tuan Anh said the road was an important part of the National North-South Highway, and its second stage was scheduled for completion later this year.

He said VEC would also collect tolls from all vehicle travelling on the Tuy Loan-Tam Ky section.

The Da Nang-Quang Ngai Expressway project commenced construction in 2012 with a total investment of VN29 trillion (US$1.4 billion), of which US$635 million was sourced from the World Bank and US$673 million from the Japan International Co-operation Agency (JICA).

The 26m-wide four-lane link, running through Da Nang-Quang Nam and Quang Ngai provinces, will connect industrial parks in the region and help boost transportation in the East-West Economic Corridor that links Thailand, Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam.
