NDO – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc commenced the construction of the Cam Lo – La Son highway connecting Quang Tri with Thua Thien – Hue province on September 16.

The 98km section has a total investment of over VND7.66 trillion (US$329.28 million) sourced from the Government bond.

The Cam Lo – La Son section is the first subproject of the 11 subprojects of the North-South Expressway in the East to be constructed this year.

Addressing the groundbreaking ceremony in Cam Hieu commune, Cam Lo district, Quang Tri province, PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc requested that the first subproject of the North-South Expressway in the East should be a model project with ensured quality and progress.

The Cam Lo – La Son section is scheduled for completion in 2021 which will be connected with the La Son - Tuy Loan expressway to form the Cam Lo - La Son - Tuy Loan expressway, meeting the transport demand and easing pressure on Highway 1, contributing to maintaining national security and fueling the development of the whole central region.

In its first phase, the Cam Lo – La Son highway will have two lanes and a width of 12m. In the next phase from 2030-2040, the section will be expanded to four-six lanes.

According to the national expressway planning by 2020 with a vision to 2030, the North-South Expressway from Lang Son to Ca Mau province has a total length of around 2,109km. Of which, the North-South Expressway in the East has a total length of about 645km including 11 subprojects.
