On operation of expressways invested and managed by VEC in 2016
Jan 16 2017

2016 is the second consecutive year that the  Vietnam Expressway Corporation (VEC) recorded remarkable achievements in production and business activities in general and in operational management of three expressway routes in particular.  

Specifically, the expressways have reached important milestones in the number of traffic:

-On 2 June, the Ho Chi Minh City – Long Thanh – Dau Giay Expressway welcomed the 20 millionth vehicle;

- In early October, the 30 millionth vehicle passed through the Cau Gie – Ninh Binh Expressway;

- In late December, the Noi Bai – Lao Cai Expressway served the 15 millionth vehicle.


VEC served about 30 million vehicles in 2016, up by 33% as compared to 2015. Toll revenues exceeded the plan by 21%, up by 30.5%  as compared to 2015.


In spite of high increase in vehicles, the number of traffic accidents on the expressways decreased by 3%, and the number of people dead and injured remain unchanged thanks to well-managed information campaigns and  the enhanced traffic safety and order.


After VEC put the expressways into operation, the transportation landscape has undergone big changes, facilitating inter-regional linkages, boosting efficiency in socio-economic development, contributing to raising GDP’s growth in areas along the expressways, drawing considerable domestic and foreign investments, and supporting local poverty alleviation. Especially, the building of expressways has reduced traffic congestion, accidents and  incidents on the national and provincial routes,  transforming  the people’s awareness, thus shaping a traffic culture on expressways.


According to Chairman of the Auto transportation Association of Yen Bai province, the Noi Bai – Lao Cai Expressway helps to cut down by 85% the number of accidents on provincial routes and 95% fatal accidents on national and provincial routes in close proximity to the expressway.


Those are  the most striking and significant  figures recorded when the expressways were put into use by VEC, bringing into full play the economic efficiency and showing huge positive social implications, contributing to maintaining and ensuring  sustainable development.


2016 is also the year that VEC continued to bolster vehicle load control in order to ensure the sustainability of transport infrastructure and improve efficiency. It also installed additional load control systems on the Cau Gie – Ninh Binh Expressway combined with the scales that had been previously set up on the Noi Bai – Lao Cai Expressway and the Ho Chi Minh City – Long Thanh – Dau Giay Expressway.


VEC implemented load control of 1,826 million vehicles, of which 9,363 found to be overloaded were denied service. Apart from enhanced vehicle load control for free, steps were taken to discover frauds, ensuring disclosure and transparency and preventing loss of fees from toll collection.


Bringing into full play what the emulation movement has achieved in implementing the workplace culture and the business culture, VEC continues to be a bright example of the transportation service on customer service, aimed at “for better satisfaction of people and businesses. Drivers, en route on the expressways managed by VEC, possess undelible impressions about the young female toll workers with tidy and polite uniforms and beautiful smiles. During holidays, festivals and events, VEC regularly organizes customer appreciation activities in order to pay tribute to those customers who always support and accompany its business.


Moreover, in 2016 VEC focused on building regulations and procedures with regards to the operation and management of expressways, especially asset management by tapping into digital technology in order to improve the efficiency of investment and operation of expressways.  


Determined to be a strong business in the transportation service playing a pivotal role in the investment and management of national expressways, in 2017 VEC looks set to improve smooth and safe traffics with a view to reducing accidents and incidents on expressways by at least 10%  and increasing the number of vehicles by 10% as compared to 2016. Also, it will bolster vehicle load controls and ensure denial of service to all overloaded vehicles on expressways.
