Hai Van pass tunnel, the longest one in Vietnam. Actually some highways in Vietnam have very nice greenery decoration.

Vietnam 1.5 billion dollar tollway to link Hanoi with seaport

HANOI, Jan 10, 2008 (AFP) - Vietnam will build a 1.5-billion-dollar highway from the capital Hanoi to the northern port of Haiphong, adding a vital link to a transport corridor with southern China, a media report said Thursday.

Work is due to start in May for the 105.5 kilometre (65.5 mile) six-lane tollway set to be completed by 2011, the Tien Phong (Pioneer) newspaper said.

The state-owned Vietnam Infrastructure Development and Financial Investment Corp will build the road link, which will displace some 7,700 residents, according to a company official quoted in the report.

Communist Vietnam, which saw 8.5 percent economic growth last year, is building new infrastructure to ease bottlenecks and better integrate its transport system with China and its Southeast Asian neighbours.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) in December approved its largest ever single-project loan, worth 1.1 billion dollars, for a four-lane highway that will cut travel times between Hanoi and Kunming in southern China.

The highway, to be completed by 2012, will link the factories and farms of China's Yunnan province with Hanoi and Haiphong and is expected to boost two-way trade and economic development in northern Vietnam.

The ADB on Thursday also announced a regional loan of 165 million dollars, co-financed by Australia and South Korea, to improve highways, bridges and border facilities linking Vietnam and Cambodia.

For those who says Vietnam has no traffic jam:


Now if you're planning to visit Vietnam, don't be hindered as this would happen only once a day at 5-6pm at certain places.

And yes, Vietnam roads are pretty bad and it has almost no expressway, but you can enjoy a (bumpy) ride by 100km/h on those roads shown above.

ADB gives Vietnam biggest ever loan

The Asian Development Bank has pledged its largest ever single loan to Vietnam. The $1.1 billion will be used to build the 244km highway from Ha Noi city airport to Lao Cai on the Chinese border. This corridor is currently operating at saturation levels in many areas. Its construction will cut some journey times from 7-10 hours down to just three hours when the tolled expressway opens in 2012. Vietnam Expressway Corporation will oversee management of implementation of the project.
I guess this will be part of the Hanoi - Kunming connection.

the one really scary !!! how could it be??? to be honest, i never ever face something like this.... the traffic flow is bad.

Vietnamese cities need to construct more city expressway providing its safe enough for motorbikes.

It is almost "impossible" to build urban expressways in Vietnam. The densities of the cities are very high and property price is extremely high making compensation for site clearance a very heavy burden, given the current stage of development in Vietnam. (Downtown Hanoi, 1 meter square of land may cost as much as US$30,000.) I can only imagine they build ring expressways around the cities.

That's great news. I wonder how many of the cars on this road that will be Vietnamese, since pretty much all road vehicles in Vietnam are either motobikes or trucks.

Let's say pretty recent rather than new.

Also, are there any plans to make real expressways around Hanoi? Current "expressways" are mostly ending directly into Hanoi confusing street systems, most of them don't even have controlled access everywhere. Any plans for expressway ring?

I think this is the problem in a lot of Asian cities. They feature some expressway-grade roads, though they do not form a clear separate system from the ordinary roads and streets.

What is wrong with "Asian Cities". Because my comment doesn't only apply to Vietnam or Indonesia, but also to Japan, South Korea, China etc.

China alone is like a continent.It doesnt make any sense if you only know one Chinese city has the same situation while infact most don't.

When you see Hanoi or Saigon live, you won't be so sure about that.

I know most Asian cities (and more so capitals) are completely different than the countryside, but still, 30,000 $ sounds very much, would be nice to see some proof.

That's price for construction parcel, not for a finished office/residential space. Considering prices elsewhere in the world, it is not very expensive, but still not cheap. Of course, this is probably valid only for certain small areas.

Vietnam funds expressway

Vietnam Infrastructure Development and Finance Investment Company, which was established in late November 2007, has set about the task of raising US$1.5 billion to build the planned Hanoi to Hai Phong Expressway. The company, which is a consortium of domestic banks and construction companies, will undertake the project as a BOT. Work on the road, which will link the national capital with its major northern port, is scheduled to commence in May. It will be the first expressway in Vietname entirely financed by domestic investors. The road will be 105.5km long and have six interchanges with other highways. It will encompass nine major bridges, 21 medium bridges and 22 over passes. Designed for speeds of 120km/h, it is slated to open in 2010. The concession is for 25 years and all investment will be recouped through the levying of tolls on users. It is estimated that Vietnam needs 6,000km of expressway to enable industrialisation and modernisation of the country to continue.
6000km is quite a lot, though there are only long distances in the north-south direction of the country.
