The Ho Chi Minh City metro line, a key infrastructure project for Vietnam’s largest city first proposed in 2001, has gone one step further with bidding opening for the tender of major components for metro line 2 in the first quarter of 2013.

The tender will include construction, erection and device supply for the 11.3 kilometer second metro line connecting the Ben Thanh and Tham Luong districts.

Ho Chi Minh City’s Management Authority of Urban Railway and Implementation Consultant (IC) are in charge of prequalification and issuing bidding documents. IC, a German-Vietnamese joint venture, is providing engineer, design and supervision consultancy services. The metro project is funded by loans from the Asian Development Bank and investment by Germany’s KfW Bankengruppe.

The Ho Chi Minh City Metro is a rapid transit network that will serve the Ho Chi Minh City metropolitan area. The network was first proposed in 2001 as part of a comprehensive public transport network plan including Ho Chi Minh City and neighbouring provinces, with the aim of avoiding the severe traffic congestion problems that have affected other Asian cities.

Most of the network is currently in the planning stages, with projects for different lines advancing as funds become available. The network’s first line, connecting Ben Thanh and Suoi Tien Park in District 9, is scheduled for completion in 2017. Construction of the second line began in August 2010 and completion is scheduled in 2018. Four others lines are included in the raw concept.
