The tunnel linking Phú Yên Province’s Hào Sơn Commune to Khánh Hòa Province’s Cổ Mã Commune stretches over 13km, including two bi-tube tunnels – Cả Pass tunnel (4.1km in length) and Cổ Mã tunnel (500m).
Each tunnel has two sides, each of which has two lanes for vehicles travelling in the same direction at the speed of 80km per hour.
This is the first tunnel road project under Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) using domestic funds of over VNĐ11 trillion (US$478.2 million) invested by Vietnamese investors and contractors.
The tunnel is expected to solve traffic congestion, enhance traffic safety through Cả Pass and help connect the two provinces to boost socio-economic development.
Service fee for the tunnel is lower than the fee of the 22km winding road of Cả Pass. Emergency service is available round-the-clock to support drivers.
According to the Đèo Cả Investment Joint Stock Company – the project’s investor, toll fee on the route will be collected from September 3 onwards. — VNS.
