A ceremony was held Wednesday to put Trung Luong – My Thuan Expressway into service for the upcoming Lunar New Year.
Nguyen Tan Dong, CEO of BOT Trung Luong – My Thuan JSC, which built the expressway, said vehicles can travel from Ho Chi Minh City to Mekong Delta using the extension from Jan. 25 to 31, ahead of the Lunar New Year, which peaks on Feb. 1.
From Feb. 1 to 15, it could be used to travel in the opposite direction.
The Trung Luong – My Thuan Expressway links up with HCMC – Trung Luong Expressway in Chau Thanh District of Tien Giang Province. It passes through five of the province’s districts to join National Highway 30 at An Thai Trung Intersection in Cai Be District.
