HCMC – A bridge linking Binh Duong and Tay Ninh provinces was opened to traffic this morning, December 26, after two years of construction, according to the government of Binh Duong.
The project, which includes two access roads, starts from Provincial Road No. 744 in Dau Tieng District, Binh Duong, and ends on the Dat Set-Ben Cui Road in Duong Minh Chau District, Tay Ninh.
The project consists of a 377-meter road section in Binh Duong, a 92-meter one in Tay Ninh Province, and a bridge over the Saigon River measuring nearly 30 meters in width and 331 meters in length.
The road and bridge project has six traffic lanes, allowing a maximum speed of 80 kilometers per hour. Work on the project started in October 2022 with a total investment of nearly VND412 billion from the local budget.
It aims to boost connectivity between the two provinces and shorten the distance from Tay Ninh to Long Thanh Airport in Dong Nai and the deepwater port in Ba Ria-Vung Tau, as well as ease traffic congestion on national highways 22 and 22B, according to Duong Van Thang, vice chairman of Tay Ninh.
Therefore, it plays an important role in the socio-economic development of Dau Tieng and Duong Minh Chau districts, as well as helps complete the transport network in the two provinces and creates favorable conditions for tourism development in the region.
Currently, Binh Duong is carrying out a road project connecting the bridge with Provincial Road No.744 with an estimated cost of VND411 billion.
Meanwhile, Tay Ninh has decided to spend over VND500 billion widening the 17-kilometer Dat Set-Ben Cui Road.
