The Ministry of Transportation, Vietnam (MoT) is planning to undertake the second phase of North to South High-Speed Railway Line project in Vietnam.
The project involves the construction of a 366km rail line between Ho Chi Minh City and Nha Trang. The express line would be built as a double-track standard gauge of 1.435mm line with a design speed of 300km/h.
It will include the construction of toll stations, pedestrian ways, and road separators and the installation of signals and safety systems.
Vietnam-Japan Consultancy Joint Venture (VJC), an alliance between Japanese and a Vietnamese consultancy firm has been chosen for the feasibility study of the project.
VJC consists of Transport Investment and Construction Consultant Joint Stock Company (TRICC), Japan Transportation Consultants (JTC), the Japan Railway Technical Service (JARTS) and the Nippon Koei Co. Ltd.
Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) signed Japanese ODA agreements with the Government of Vietnam to offer its support for the most important sections of Vietnam's North-South Expressway network, namely Ho Chi Minh City-Dau Giay section and Da Nang-Quang Ngai section.
In April 2010, Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd, Mitsubishi Corp., Sumitomo Corp., and other Japanese companies requested MoT to adopt their bullet train technology and Vietnam government approved to undertake the Japan's Shinkansen bullet train technology for the project.

In September 2010, the proposal was again reviewed and detailed study was initiated by JICA.
In March 2013, JICA submitted a report to concerned authorities for the development of the project.
