HCMC – A pre-feasibility study for the Can Tho 2 Bridge project in the Mekong Delta has been submitted to the Ministry of Transport at a proposed cost of VND19.8 trillion.

The project has a total length of 14.65 kilometers, including a 2.75-km four-lane bridge, 8.38 km of access road on the Vinh Long Province side and 3.52 km of access road on the Can Tho City side.

Two investment options are currently under consideration. Option 1 proposes separate rail and road components with a 550-meter main span, estimated to cost VND19,782 billion. Option 2 suggests integrating rail and road in the project, with a total investment of VND27,494 billion.

The My Thuan Project Management Board favors Option 1, targeting project completion between 2026-2029.

Currently, Can Tho Bridge is the only cable-stayed bridge crossing the Hau River that links Can Tho City and Vinh Long Province. The bridge was opened to traffic in 2010.
