HCMC – The HCMC Department of Planning and Architecture today, April 19, published the chosen architectural design for the Can Gio Bridge project in HCMC, the local media reported.

The design chosen was created by Kidohu Green Construction Investment JSC. The cable-stayed bridge connecting the city’s two outlying districts of Nha Be and Can Gio will be supported by the main pillar shaped like a mangrove tree, a typical type of plant in Can Gio District. The bridge railing will take the shape of waves.

Can Gio Bridge will cross the Soai Rap River at the current Binh Khanh ferry terminal to Can Gio Mangrove Biosphere Reserve.

The HCMC government confirmed that the scale and parameters of the projected Can Gio bridge will continue to be adjusted to fall in sync with the district’s plans.

Some firms engaging in design and research activities for Can Gio Bridge said that the total spending on the project is estimated at VND8 trillion.

When put in place, the bridge, as a replacement for the Binh Khanh ferry service, will link Can Gio District and the city's central area, ensuring the economic development of the district, especially tourism.
