By 2045, the Red River Delta region targets developing a synchronised and modern transport infrastructure system through investments in roads, rivers, railways, and aviation.
|The Red River Delta to develop more transport infrastructure projects |
At a conference on February 12 in Quang Ninh province on the implementation of the government’s action programme for the Red River Delta to 2030, with a vision to 2045, Minister of Transport Nguyen Van Thang said that the ministry will cooperate with other ministries, agencies, and localities to ensure the completion of the transport infrastructure system in the region.
Accordingly, they are determined to develop regional ring roads and motorway systems including Ninh Binh-Haiphong, Noi Bai-Halong, Co Tiet-Cho Ben, and inter-regional routes to create economic corridors and urban-economic centres to boost growth in the region.
In addition, they will continue to upgrade the existing railway system, while simultaneously developing new routes such as Yen Vien-Pha Lai-Halong-Cai Lan, the north-south high-speed railway, and the Hanoi-Haiphong line that will connect with Dinh Vu and Lach Huyen seaports.
The parties will also develop more seaports in Haiphong and Quang Ninh and build island ports to promote economic growth. They have plans to develop inland container depots to support the required logistics.
Furthermore, it is a priority to expand Noi Bai and Cat Bi airports, while further exploiting Van Don International Airport.
The Red River delta holds huge potential to become one of Southeast Asia’s major logistics hubs, contributing to the rapid and sustainable development of Vietnam’s northern region.
The region comprises 11 provinces and centrally run cities that are divided into two sub-regions. The northern sub-region covers Hanoi, Haiphong, and the provinces of Quang Ninh, Vinh Phuc, Bac Ninh, Hai Duong, and Hung Yen, while the south consists of the provinces of Thai Binh, Ha Nam, Nam Dinh, and Ninh Binh.
