Work on the five-kilometer road, funded by the People's Committee of Soc Son District, started on July 28, 2020. It comprises the main route and service roads, designed for a speed limit of 70 kilometers per hour, with a cross-section width of  40 meters to 50 meters.

The investment in the project encompasses comprehensive and modern upgrades to the foundation, road surface, sidewalks, landscaping, and lighting infrastructure. The total investment in this endeavor amounts to nearly VND659 billion ($27 million), of which VND257.4 billion ($10.5 million) is allocated for site clearance expenses. This funding has been sourced from Hanoi's budget.

Speaking at the traffic opening ceremony, the Chairman of Soc Son District People's Committee, Pham Van Minh, highlighted the concerted efforts made by the district's authorities and the broader political system following the approval of the project by the Hanoi People's Committee.

Minh underscored the significance of this project, emphasizing that upon its completion, the road connecting the Soc Son satellite urban area to Vo Nguyen Giap Street will create new opportunities and conditions for the district.

 The road will help open up new development opportunities for Soc Son District. 

“It will enhance transportation connectivity, attract investment, alleviate traffic congestion on National Highway 3 leading to Noi Bai International Airport, and facilitate access to central Hanoi,” said Minh.

Additionally, the road will expand the development space, unlocking the potential of land resources on both sides of the route. This, in turn, will pave the way for connecting other transportation arteries, promoting investment and business opportunities, and encouraging investors to engage in cooperative ventures within the district by regulations.

Furthermore, it will support the transportation of goods and foster production growth, serving as a crucial foundation for the development of satellite urban areas in the future.
