HCMC – HCMC will break ground on the VND404-billion Hang Ngoai Bridge overpassing the railway—expected to ease traffic congestion from Nguyen Thai Son to Pham Van Dong Street in Go Vap District—in September and target its completion in 11 months.

According to a representative of the HCMC Management Board of Investment and Construction of Traffic Projects, the four-lane project will be 650 meters long, including 25 meters of the bridge surface and 625 meters of roads leading to the bridge.

The bridge will be widened to 22.5 meters and auxiliary works such as a drainage system and a lighting system will be installed and trees will be planted along it.

The city will build a temporary iron bridge for vehicles to travel on. It will then begin work on the first section of the bridge to serve vehicles first, develop the second section and finally dismantle the iron bridge.

The Hang Ngoai Bridge project was approved in October 2017, aimed at replacing the old bridge, which has been aging and is narrower than the roads linking to it.
