Metro Line No. 1 connecting Ben Thanh Market in the downtown area and Suoi Tien Theme Park in District 9 stretches 19.7 kilometers, and consists of an 2.6-kilometer underground section and a 17.1-kilometer elevated section. The project has three underground stations and 11 stations on land. Previously, the project was planned for completion in 2017 and operation in 2018.
Initially, the project required an investment capital of US$1.09 billion sourced by the ODA loans and the State budget. However, adjustments and exchange rate volatility have pushed up the figure to US$2.47 billion.
It will take passengers about 30 minutes to commute between downtown HCMC and Suoi Tien Park at a maximum speed of 80 kilometer per hour on the underground track and 110 kilometers per hour on the elevated track.
