HCMC – The HCMC government has chosen the design created by Kidohu Green Construction Investment JSC for the Can Gio bridge project connecting the city’s two outlying districts of Nha Be and Can Gio, said the chief of the city government’s office, Vo Van Hoan.

The cable-stayed bridge would be supported by a pillar shaped like a mangrove tree, a typical type of plant in Can Gio, besides other pillars. The bridge railing will take the shape of waves.

When vehicles cross the bridge at night, it would look like a mangrove forest.

However, the city asked for further consideration of the bridge’s technical parameters to meet Can Gio District’s planning adjustments.

Earlier, Can Gio Urban Tourism JSC had proposed developing Can Gio bridge over Soai Rap River. The 3.4-kilometer bridge, which would have four lanes, requires an estimated investment of more than VND5.3 trillion (US$228.3 million), excluding site clearance and compensation costs.

The project was proposed to be executed under the build-transfer format. In exchange, the city would allocate the company land in the Can Gio sea encroachment tourist urban area. If the land value is not equal to the capital injected into the project, the city must pay the balance in cash or allocate another lot of land.
