As scheduled, the upgrading work will be completed by early 2022. It will promote trade with Cambodia and Binh Phuoc’s neighboring provinces in the Southern region.

The project is being invested by the management board of provincial construction investment.

With a full length of more than 140km, National Highway No.13 starts from km 0, located in Binh Thanh district, Ho Chi Minh City, crosses Binh Duong and Binh Phuoc provinces and ends at the Hoa Lu International Border Gate.

Reportedly, a part of National Highway No.13 from Loc Tan commune (Binh Phuoc) to Binh Duong province and Ho Chi Minh City has been upgraded. Nevertheless, the road surface from Loc Tan T-junction to the Hoa Lu International Border Gate is currently in a bad condition while its capacity does not meet the increasing demand of traffic and goods transportation to the Hoa Lu International Border Gate./.
