HCMC – Two bridges crossing the Linh Dam Lake were opened for traffic in Hoang Mai District, Hanoi City, this morning, October 6, after nearly 11 months of construction, the Vietnam News Agency reported.

Hoang Dinh Hieu, managing director of the project, said this is one of the five major transport projects of the capital city this year and is expected to help reduce traffic congestion on the Thanh Xuan and Phap Van intersections and the intersection between Nguyen Huu Tho and Giai Phong streets.

One bridge measures 260 meters in length and the other is 22 meters longer. Both of them are 13 meters in width. The bridges also have sidewalks measuring 1.75 meters in width each for pedestrians, steel banisters and energy-efficient lighting systems.

The bridges are connected to Belt Road No. 3 and were built at a cost of VND341 billion (US$14.7 million), including VND14.7 billion in site clearance cost and over VND258 billion in construction cost, which was sourced from the city’s budget.

Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Hanoi chairman Chu Ngoc Anh said that during the nearly 11 months of construction, the project faced many difficulties, from site clearance obstacles and dense traffic in the area to disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the joint efforts of the investor, the contractors, the municipal departments and the local residents helped ensure the project’s timely completion, quality and safety.
