HCMC's first metro route will get four more trains from Japan by next month to add to the seven it has already received, its builder said Tuesday.

The Ho Chi Minh City Management Authority for Urban Railways (MAUR) said two are slated to arrive at the Khanh Hoi Port in District 4 on Nov. 28 and the other two on Dec. 5.

A metro train from Japan arrives at HCMC's Khanh Hoi Port in May 2021.

The 19.7-km route No.1 from Ben Thanh Market in District 1 to Suoi Tien Theme Park in Thu Duc City will operate 17 trains, each with three cars, 61.5 meters long and with a capacity of 930 passengers. They will run at up to 110 kph above ground and 80 kph underground.

The construction has suffered several delays, and MAUR said recently the work would be completed in late 2023 or early 2024 after the latest delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

To cost more than VND43.7 trillion ($1.89 billion), the system will have 14 stations, three underground and 11 on the surface, some elevated.
