HCMC – Vietnam Railways (VNR) has put forth a VND445-billion project to upgrade two railway stations, Song Than in Binh Duong Province in the south of the country and Cao Xa in Hai Duong Province in the north, to facilitate international cargo transport. In a recent proposal sent to the Ministry of Transport, VNR suggested allocating VND150 billion for the upgrade of Song Than station and VND295 billion for the renovation of Cao Xa station. According to VNR, infrastructure at Song Than railway station, including the railway itself, warehouse, cargo yard, and the water drainage system, is deteriorating. As the most crucial cargo railway station in the southern region, Song Than serves as a pivotal hub for cargo reception and distribution for all southern provinces. VNR also plans to establish a maintenance service center for container trucks, facilities for handling refrigerated cargo, and other auxiliary facilities.
