Dp Cao Lanh - An Huu Expressway Project is a lifeline that plays a very important role in socio-economic development, ensuring national defense and security, so My Thuan Project Management Board propose to apply the form of open domestic bidding (as prescribed at Point b, Clause 3, Article 31) to select investors to implement component projects, similar to the form of bidding for PPP component projects. The Eastern North-South Expressway for the period 2017 - 2020 has been approved by the competent authorities.
The XIII Congress of the Party approved the Strategy for Socio-Economic Development for the 2021-2030 period, with the goal of "By 2030, the whole country should strive to have about 5,000 km of expressways, of which by 2025, to complete into the North-South expressway in the East…”.
About 5,000 km of highways include Cao Lanh - An Huu expressway. This is one of three horizontal highways in the Mekong Delta region.
The investment in the construction of a new Cao Lanh - An Huu expressway contributes to completing the regional traffic network, meeting the transportation needs on the horizontal corridor running along the north bank of the Tien River, at the same time. The route is part of the Hong Ngu - Tra Vinh expressway to connect Dinh Ba international border gate (Dong Thap province) with seaports in the coastal area and Dinh An economic zone (Tra Vinh province).
