According to the Ministry of Transport, the approval of the sub-projects is a key milestone that concludes the project preparation and leads to the implementation phase.

Earlier on January 11, the National Assembly approved the investment plan for the Eastern North-South Expressway project in the 2021-2025 period, paving the way for the Government to start the preparatory process.

Localities are working to speed up site clearance, striving to hand over 70% of the cleared sites to contractors before November 20 so that construction can kick off before year-end.

The country currently has 1,163km of expressways. Some 916km are expected to be completed by 2023, bringing the total length to 2,079km, according to the ministry. That figure should grow to 3,000km and 5,000km in 2025 and 2030, respectively, it said.
