BÌNH DƯƠNG — Secretary of the Bình Dương Party Committee, Nguyễn Văn Lợi, has directed departments and relevant units to speed up the construction and upgrade progress of National Highway 13 to improve the connectivity of the province and HCM City. National Highway 13 not only plays the role of the "backbone" traffic axis of the province's transport system, but is also an arterial route connecting the HCM City to Bình Phước and the Central Highlands provinces. The widening of National Highway 13 from six lanes to eight lanes is expected to cost around VNĐ9 trillion (US$388 million). Currently, some sections of National Highway 13 have been upgraded and expanded, and the drainage system has been installed. The widening of major roads such as National Highway 13 and Mỹ Phước - Tân Vạn between concentrated industrial zones has eased travel to ports.
