NDO/VNA – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc cut the ribbon putting the interchange connecting Belt Road No 3 and the Hanoi-Hai Phong Expressway into operation on January 9.

The interchange, located in the districts of Long Bien and Gia Lam, has two routes: a 1.5km stretch linking Long Bien-Thach Ban with the expressway, and another 620m stretch connecting Belt Road No 3 and the expressway.

The project is expected to shorten travel times on the route and fully exploit the investment efficiency of Belt Road No 3, the Hanoi-Hai Phong Expressway and Co Linh Road.

This will help ease traffic congestion and boost the city’s socio-economic development.

The project, with investment of more than VND402 billion (US$17.5 million), was approved in June 2020 and completed two months ahead of schedule.
