HCMC – The HCMC Transport Department has approved the bidding plan and cost estimate for the Can Gio bridge project.

As part of the plan, the cable-stayed bridge will be developed under the build-operate-transfer format.

According to the department, the project will need nearly VND10 billion, of which the HCMC government will spend VND4,000 billion on site clearance compensation, and investors will cover the balance for construction.

The tender to select investors is updated on the National Bidding Network System.

As part of the project, the six-lane bridge is set to link HCMC’s two outlying districts, Can Gio and Nha Be, with a total length of over 3.6 kilometers.

The city is expected to break ground on the project in 2024 and complete it in 2028.

The Binh Khanh Ferry will cease operations when the bridge is put into operation, making Can Gio District more accessible.
