The route links Ho Chi Minh City with the Cambodian border and is important for trade and transport between the two nations. National Highway 22B is located in of Vietnam’s southeastern province Tay Ninh in Vietnam. The work is expected to cost US$13.23 million and will be carried out in several phases. Work on the first stage will start in 2017 and will see repairs to the 33km section from Bình Minh Commune to the Asian Highway, three-way crossroads. Work on the 25km-long second stage will start in 2018 and will extend to Tân Biên District. In 2019 work on the 22km stretch to the Xa Mát international border in Tân Biên District will be carried out.
