An Suong intersection connects western and eastern areas and other regions such as Tay Ninh, Cambodia and the South-Central Highland. The intersection is where the Trans-Asia Highway (part of National Highway 22), Truong Chinh Street, and Ring Road No.2 (National Highway 1A section) meet.
The completed project is expected to reduce traffic congestion as well as traffic accidents in the region, and support transportation to the northwest of the city. It cost VND514 billion ($22.35 million), including VND130 billion ($5.65 million) for site clearance and VND314 billion ($13.65 million) for construction.

An Suong intersection is a three-level construction, including two tunnels, a regular road section, and an overpass. The double tunnel takes vehicles on the road to Truong Chinh Street as well as National Route 22, while the overpass navigates vehicles on National Route 1A.

Vo Van Hoan, deputy president of Ho Chi Minh City’s People Committee, stated that it has been almost 20 years since the project started. He expressed his gratitude to the residents who were willing to hand over land for the construction, as well as the people living in the districts of Hoc Mon and District 12.
Along with An Suong intersection, there have been eight projects in the completion stage from August to October this year, including an embankment in District 2 and An Phu Dong temporary bridge.
