Transport ministry supports Tan Son Nhat Airport flyover

The Ministry of Transport has agreed on HCM City’s proposal to build a flyover road to help ease traffic congestion for Tan Son Nhat International Airport, said Deputy Minister Nguyen Hong Truong.
Speaking to DTiNews, Deputy Minister Nguyen Hong Truong said that in the near future, Tan Son Nhat Airport would have a third terminal and another runway, so traffic in the area would face more serious pressure.

“The solution to build an elevated road to Tan Son Nhat Airport as it would be very suitable for the airport planning. The ministry will submit the proposal to the government for consideration,” Truong added.
According to the proposal made by a group of companies, including Dong A Infrastructure Corporation, the road will start from Terminal 2, run along Phan Thuc Duyet and end at Hoang Van Thu Street.
The VND2.6 trillion (USD123 million) road will take 18 months to build.
Tan Son Nhat Airport welcomed over 32 million passengers in 2016 and the number could reach 40 million in 2017.
Meanwhile, the airport’s design capacity is only 25 million people per annum.
HCM City has proposed to the Ministry of Transport to increase the number of night flights to reduce congestion at the airport.
