The components projects, covering the sections of Mai Son-National Highway 45, Vinh Hao-Phan Thiet, and Phan Thiet-Dau Giay, have been transformed from the public-private-partnership (PPP) form to the public investment model.
The expressway is set to have a total length of 1,811km, connecting Hanoi and the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho.
The eastern North-South expressway project includes 11 sub-projects with a total length of 654km running through 13 cities and provinces.
The 11 sub-projects are estimated to cost a total of 118 trillion VND (5.04 billion USD), including 55 trillion VND in State capital in three public investment projects, and counterpart funds for the other eight projects.
Once completed, it is expected to become a backbone connecting the entire country./.
