Completing intra-provincial transportation

Thua Thien Hue is one of the localities vigorously promoting the movement of construction of new rural areas (NRAs) and upgraded NRAs. To achieve the result, in recent years, Thua Thien Hue has focused on investing in transportation infrastructure because it is not only an important criterion but also a lever for breakthroughs. With this importance, Thua Thien Hue has been implementing many important transportation projects planned to connect urban areas in districts and towns such as Phong Dien, Huong Tra, Phu Vang... contributing to socio-economic development.

Mr. Ho Huu Phu, Head of the Management Board of Investment in Construction of Phong Dien District, said that Phong Dien has been a locality receiving attention and support for investment in transportation infrastructure with funding of hundreds of billion dong. Alongside the Phong Dien - Dien Loc route connecting the district center to the coast of over 16km; with a budget of over 600 billion dong managed by the Investment Management Board of Transportation Infrastructure Projects of the province, the district is also implementing the Khuc Ly - My Xuyen route over 8.4km with a budget of over 77 billion dong; improving sidewalks and roadsides of Highway 1A through the center of An Lo (Phong An, Phong Hien), and Phong Dien town. In addition, many roads have been implemented under the NRA construction program combined with local development in agriculture, industry, and tourism, with investment mobilized from various sources...

Similar to Phong Dien, Phu Loc district, besides the horizontal and vertical transportation system connecting the Chan May - Lang Co Economic Zone, is currently investing in expanding many routes to drive the development of urban areas in the region, such as the 2.7km La Son urban axis with a budget of 152 billion dong; the 2.2km La Son Ring Road of nearly 38 billion dong in the northern gateway area of the district; Highway 1A to Bach Ma National Park and Highway 1A - Truc Lam Bach Ma Monastery; roads through Vinh Hien town... paving the way for the construction of type V urban areas...

In recent times, in Hue City, upgrading, and expanding the banks of the Huong River as well as the inner city and newly expanded suburban areas' road systems, sidewalks, and roadsides have been implemented. Moreover, many routes in the eastern part of the city, such as Phu My - Thuan An, Mai Market - Tan My, Pham Van Dong, and western routes like Ring Road 3, the Huong River Overpass... have been being expanded. These are the projects contributing to a new breakthrough for Hue City in the coming time.

Regional transportation hub

Returning to her hometown during the Lunar New Year of the Year of the Dragon after many years away, Ms. Hoang Thi Chi (Hue City) was amazed at the changes in the eastern part of Hue City and Huong Thuy town. Not only are the houses and residential areas more orderly, but many new roads, spacious and clean, have connected the regions. Chi sincerely felt that previously, every time she traveled from Ho Chi Minh City to Hue and to Phu Bai International Airport, it would take nearly 2 hours by car to reach her home in Hai Duong commune (Hue City). Recently, upon arriving at Phu Bai International Airport, Chi took a car via Highway 1A through Vo Van Kiet Street - Phu My - Thuan An route and found the journey home much faster, with smooth driving and relaxed atmosphere, taking less than an hour. Along this route, Chi admired new residential areas and urban areas such as An Van Duong, Southeast Thuy An (Hue City) ... with completely new appearances compared to five years ago.

According to assessments from experts at conferences providing feedback on the General Urban Development Plan for Thua Thien Hue Province until 2045 and orientations until 2065 approved by the Prime Minister according to Decision 108, intra-provincial and national transportation infrastructure projects have been gradually completed, creating a new look for Thua Thien Hue urban area with its characteristic cultural, heritage, ecological, landscape, environmentally friendly, and smart features.

With the approved decision, the urban space structure of Thua Thien Hue has three key development areas. Specifically, the central urban area, which includes the existing Hue City and the expanded areas towards Huong Thuy and Huong Tra, is connected based on transportation routes such as Phu My - Thuan An, and the western coastal road along Tam Giang lagoon that has been completed; Mai Market - Tan My road and To Huu road connecting Hue City to Phu Bai International Airport have been under construction. In the southern area, a transportation infrastructure framework has been established by connecting the Hai Van Tunnel road, horizontal routes at Chan May - Lang Co Economic Zone, the corridor of Highway 1A, railway and La Son - Tuy Loan expressway for further investment in type 3 urban areas, characterized by tourism, services, and seaports...

In the northern area, there is currently a concentration of resources for investment in infrastructure, commercial services, industry, and expanding regional transportation routes, connecting with the Phong Dien - Dien Loc route and Highway 49B... to elevate Phong Dien district to a town, step by step building type 4 urban areas meeting the standards for the period 2025-2030.

The leaders of the Department of Transportation have recognized that the intra-provincial and national transportation systems in the area have basically been interconnected with provinces and cities in the Central region. This is a new impetus for Thua Thien Hue City to develop more strongly in the coming time.
