HCMC – Deputy Prime Minister Tran Hong Ha has directed the Ministry of Transport to explore options for widening the HCMC-Trung Luong and Trung Luong-My Thuan expressways. Under the plan, the HCMC-Trung Luong Expressway will be expanded to eight traffic lanes, while the Trung Luong-My Thuan Expressway will be widened to six traffic lanes from the current four. Following the expansion, HCMC-Trung Luong will enable motorists to travel at a maximum speed of 120 kilometers per hour and Trung Luong-My Thuan at 100 kilometers per hour. The HCMC-Trung Luong Expressway stretches 40 kilometers and currently features four lanes for vehicles along with two emergency lanes. Covering a distance of 51 kilometers with a configuration of four traffic lanes, the Trung Luong-My Thuan Expressway began operations in April 2022, enforcing an 80-kilometer-per-hour speed limit.
