The Ring Road 4 - Capital Area construction project has a total length of approximately 112.8km. Within this length, a section of 58.2km runs through Hanoi, while the remaining 9.7km connects to the Hanoi - Ha Long expressway and traverses Hung Yen and Bac Ninh Provinces. The project's starting point is at the intersection of the Hanoi - Lao Cai expressway, and it ends at the intersection point of the Noi Bai - Ha Long expressway. The project is invested through the use of public investment capital combined with public-private partnership (PPP) investments and is organized into three project groups, consisting of seven component projects, with a total investment capital of 85,813 billion VND. The project's initiation took place in 2022, with the primary objective of completing construction by 2026 and commencing operation by 2027.

The project's primary objective is to create new development space and solve existing problems in Hanoi. It aims to capitalize on the land potential, establish a sustainable and modern urban system, and contribute to the successful realization of the country's economic and social development goals, according to the Resolution of the 13th National Party Congress. The groundbreaking ceremony marks a significant milestone in the journey towards gradually achieving the project's objectives. It symbolizes the determination, cooperation, and commitment to progress by the three localities of Hanoi, Bac Ninh, and Hung Yen, as they work together to expand space and enhance interregional connectivity for the collective future development of the Capital Area and the country.
