Two sections of the North-South Expressway project are set to become operational by late April.

The Cam Lam-Vinh Hao section, which runs through the provinces of Khanh Hoa, Ninh Thuan, and Binh Thuan, and the Dien Chau-Bai Vot section, passing through Nghe An and Ha Tinh provinces, will be completed as part of the eastern North-South Expressway sub-project.

The Ministry of Transport reports that nearly 95 percent of the work on the Cam Lam-Vinh Hao section had been completed by mid-February. However, some facilities, including toll booths, the Intelligent Transportation System, and the Thuan Nam intersection, remain unfinished.

Construction of the VND8.92 trillion (USD364 million) 78.5-kilometre road began in September 2021. Once open, it will nearly halve the travel time between HCM City and Nha Trang to around four hours.

Meanwhile, the Dien Chau-Bai Vot section is approximately 72 percent complete. Work on the 49.3-kilometre section, costing VND11.15 trillion, started in May 2021.

Both road sections feature four lanes.
