The 102-kilometre long Hanoi-Hai Phong line, part of the Lao Cai-Hanoi-Hai Phong line, will run in parallel to the Hanoi-Hai Phong Expressway and connect with the port of Hai Phong.

In the central region, a 103-kilometre line will run from Vung Ang Port to Mu Gia on the Vietnam-Laos border.

The Bien Hoa-Vung Tau line runs 84 kilometres from Trang Bom to Vung Tau stations.

There will also be two other lines linking Ho Chi Minh City with Can Tho and Loc Ninh, with respective lengths of 174 kilometres and 128 kilometres.

The Thu Thiem-Long Thanh line will link Long Thanh International Airport with Thu Thiem Station and only serve passengers.

By 2050 Vietnam’s national rail network will include 25 lines with a total length of 6,354 kilometres.
