Pham Van Dong Road opens for traffic in Thu Duc District

Pham Van Dong Boulevard, section from Road 18 to Road 20 in Thu Duc District, has been opened for traffic since 9 a.m. this morning, announced the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Transport.


From 9 a.m. on August 16, traffic on some parts of Kha Van Can that links Pham Van Dong street will be changed.


The Section from Road 20 to Highway 13 will become one-way street. The stretch from Kha Van Can to Pham Van Dong of Roads 17 and 18 will be two way street.


Pham Van Dong Boulevard was earlier called Tan Son Nhat-Binh Loi - outer belt road.


The 13.6 kilometer road is invested by the South Korean Engineering and Construction Corp under BT (Built-Transfer) form at an estimated capital at US$340 million.


Pham Van Dong Boulevard  begins at Tan Son Nhat International Airport, runs through four districts including Tan Binh, Go Vap, Binh Thanh and Thu Duc and ends at Linh Xuan Intersection in Thu Duc.


Breaking ground in 2008, the first five kilometer section of the project was opened for traffic last September from Nguyen Thai Son Intersection in Go Vap to Binh Trieu Bridge in Thu Duc.


The most important item of the project is Binh Loi Bridge which was largest  Nielsen bridge in Vietnam.
