Hanoi-Lang Son highway a step closer

8 Apr
VNREThe final report of ADB-funded Hanoi-Lang Son highway project was recently submitted to the Ministry of Transport by the Oriental Consultants, Mott Mac Donald and APECO consultant consortium.

Accordingly, the highway will be around 160 kilometres long, consisting of four lanes in the first stage of investment which will be later upgraded into six lanes and cost an estimated $1.4 billion.

Construction will take place over 129km sections spanning from Huu Nghi border gate in northern Lang Son to Nhu Nguyet bridge in Bac Ninh province.

The remaining 30km sections from Nhu Nguyet bridge to Hanoi will involve upgrading existing roads to reach highway standards.

The highway’s 90km section in Lang Son will go across 20 communes in four districts and Lang Son city.

The Vietnam Expressway Corporation is the project developer.
