Authorities in Dong Nai have requested VND 4.1 trillion ($ 180.81 million) in government assistance to build a road and extend another leading to Long Thanh International Airport under construction.

The 53-kilometer 770B road is said to have eight lanes, connecting the districts of Dinh Quan, Thong Nhat, Cam My and Long Khanh City to Long Thanh Airport, the first phase of construction of which began earlier this year.

In addition to improving the connectivity of the airport, the brand new road would also allow the transport of goods from the industrial parks to the port of Cai Mep – Thi Vai.

When in service, the route will help reduce overloading on National Road 20, Provincial Road 769, especially in the area of ​​Dau Giay Town in Thong Nhat District.

The project is estimated at 12.5 trillion VND.

Another VND 5.5 trillion project is expected to extend and extend Route 773 to over 51 kilometers, with six to eight lanes and connecting Xuan Loc and Cam My districts to the airport.

According to the provincial Ministry of Transport, the construction of the two roads would be carried out during the period 2021-2025, the first phase of Long Thanh airport to be completed in the first half of 2025.

Dong Nai, on the HCMC border, is emerging as a major industrial hub as foreign companies continue to shift production to Vietnam.

The government said earlier that construction of the airport is expected to be completed in the first half of 2025 and will become operational by the end of this year.

Long Thanh Airport will have an annual capacity of 100 million passengers and five million tonnes of cargo. It is expected to be the largest in Vietnam, sharing the burden of Tan Son Nhat Airport in HCMC.
