The Global City – This is the initial segment of the 4 km TP.HCM – Long Thanh – Dau Giay expressway, which is currently being proposed by the Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee for upgrading and expanding from 4 lanes to 8 lanes.
The TP.HCM – Long Thanh – Dau Giay expressway section from the An Phu interchange to Belt Road 2.
The Ministry of Transport has issued letter No. 8218/BGTVT - KHDT to the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Transport to solicit opinions on the proposed investment direction for the expansion project of the TP.HCM – Long Thanh – Dau Giay expressway section from the An Phu interchange to Belt Road 2.
In this letter, the Ministry of Transport states that the construction project for the TP.HCM – Long Thanh – Dau Giay expressway phase 1, with a scale of 4 lanes, was invested in and put into operation by the Vietnam Expressway Corporation (VEC) in 2016.
Since its commencement of operation until now, the traffic volume of vehicles participating in circulation on the TP.HCM – Long Thanh – Dau Giay expressway has consistently increased (averaging around 10.45% per year).
According to calculations by consultants, the scope of the expressway from TP.HCM (An Phu interchange) to Long Thanh (interchange with the Bien Hoa – Vung Tau expressway), spanning approximately 26 km, has been operated at over 25% capacity utilization, still falling short of meeting transportation demand, particularly with the upcoming operation of Phase 1 of Long Thanh International Airport, expected to commence by the end of 2025, which will further increase pressure on this expressway segment.
Hence, the Ministry of Transport assesses that the investment in expanding the expressway section from TP.HCM to Long Thanh, including the segment from the An Phu interchange to Belt Road 2, is highly necessary and urgent.
In relation to the alignment suitability, the Ministry of Transport asserts that the expressway segment from the An Phu interchange to Belt Road 2, spanning approximately 4 km (km0+00 – Km4+00), part of Phase 1 of the TP.HCM – Long Thanh – Dau Giay expressway project, was transferred to the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Transport for management and operation by VEC in 2017.
In the investment proposal dossier for the expansion of the expressway segment from the An Phu interchange to Belt Road 2...
The Ho Chi Minh City Department of Transport proposes the expansion of the expressway from a scale of 4 lanes to a scale of 8 lanes, which aligns with the Transportation Development Plan of Ho Chi Minh City up to 2020 and its vision beyond 2020, as approved by Prime Minister Decision No. 568/QD-TTg dated April 8, 2013. Additionally, the proposed expansion investment scale is in accordance with the Decision No. 344/QD-BGTVT dated February 13, 2007, issued by the Ministry of Transport for the approval of the investment in the TP.HCM – Long Thanh – Dau Giay expressway project.
In addition, according to the Railway Network Development Plan for the period 2021-2030, vision to 2050, and the Transportation Development Plan of Ho Chi Minh City up to 2020 and its vision beyond 2020, the high-speed railway section from Nha Trang to Ho Chi Minh City with a gauge of 1,435mm and the light railway line from Thu Thiem to Long Thanh with a gauge of 1,435mm are planned to run in parallel on the right side of the TP.HCM – Long Thanh – Dau Giay expressway.
According to the proposal dossier, the expressway segment from the An Phu interchange to Belt Road 2 has been acquired by the state (GPMB) and is currently being managed by the local authorities with a total right-of-way width of 116 meters. Within this width, there is sufficient allocation for the high-speed road (8 lanes, 36-meter width), two high-speed railway lines Nha Trang – Ho Chi Minh City and light railway line Thu Thiem – Long Thanh (allocated land width of 40 meters for railway), and parallel urban roads on both sides (each side with a width of 20 meters).
Currently, the Ministry of Transport is directing the Project Management Board for Railways to urgently review and finalize the feasibility study reports for the two high-speed railway projects: Nha Trang – Ho Chi Minh City and the light railway Thu Thiem – Long Thanh.
Therefore, the Ministry of Transport proposes that the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Transport pay attention, closely coordinate, and provide support to the Project Management Board for Railways during the process of participating in providing opinions on the project documents.
Related to the scope and investment scale of the expansion project, the proposal dossier for the scope of the investment expansion study starts at the point Km0+800 (starting point of the An Phu interchange) and ends at point Km4+000 (according to the handover route managed and operated by Ho Chi Minh City).
According to the Ministry of Transport, currently, the An Phu interchange is under investment and construction by the Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee. At the same time, the section of the expressway from Ring Road 2 to Long Thanh is being studied for expansion by the State Capital Management Committee in Enterprises and VEC (Vietnam Expressway Corporation).
In the next implementation phase, the Ministry of Transport recommends that the project's investors engage in consensus discussions to ensure coordinated alignment of investment scope with other relevant projects' investors. The Ministry of Transport believes that the proposed expansion scale for the road section (adding 4.75 meters on each side to achieve a total width of 8 lanes and a roadbed width of 36 meters) and the bridge section (adding 5.25 meters on each side to achieve a total width of 8 lanes) is appropriate in accordance with the comprehensive investment scale specified in Decision 344/QD-BGTVT dated February 13, 2007, by the Ministry of Transport for the approval of the TP. HCM – Long Thanh – Dau Giay Expressway construction project.
Due to the fact that the Expansion Project has been subjected to investment research through PPP, BOT contract, and public investment methods, the proposed investment recommendation for the Project has been aligned with the public investment approach utilizing the municipal budget. This approach is suitable for the project category that utilizes mid-term public investment funds, with an extended phase from 2021 to 2025. This proposal was approved by the People's Committee of Ho Chi Minh City in Document No. 2416/UBND-DA dated June 6, 2023.
In the 5th session of the 15th National Assembly, Resolution No. 98/2023/QH15 was adopted regarding the pilot implementation of certain mechanisms and policies for the special development of Ho Chi Minh City. This resolution includes provisions allowing the city to apply the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) contract model for projects involving the investment, construction, upgrading, expansion, and modernization of existing road infrastructure in accordance with approved urban planning. This applies to main urban roads, elevated roads, as well as the Build-Transfer (BT) contract model with payment using the state budget.
"Therefore, we recommend that the Department of Transport of Ho Chi Minh City direct the consulting firm to study the application of the aforementioned special policies for the Project, in order to diversify investment methods, submit for authority review, and choose an investment method that is suitable for the local resources and balanced in the interests of the residents in the area," suggested the Ministry of Transport.
According to the proposal of the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Transport, the section from An Phú interchange to Vành đai 2 will be expanded on both sides, with each side widened by 4.75 meters, ensuring a total of 8 lanes, a road width of 36 meters, and a bridge width corresponding to the road width. The total investment amount for the Project is 1,105.6 billion VND from the city's budget, with land clearance costs at 0 VND; construction costs at 874 billion VND; Project management, consulting, and other costs at 87.4 billion VND; and contingency costs at 144.2 billion VND. The Ho Chi Minh City Department of Transport plans to approve the investment policy proposal in the third quarter of 2023; approve the feasibility study report in the fourth quarter of 2023; select the construction contractor in the second quarter of 2024; and carry out construction from the third quarter of 2024 to the fourth quarter of 2025.
