HCMC – Nutifood has inked a deal with a Japanese consortium to take preliminary steps in a project to build a nipa palm leaf-shaped pedestrian bridge across the Saigon River, according to local media.

Nutifood, a HCMC-based dairy products maker, signed the cooperation agreement last week with the Japanese consortium comprising Chodai & Kiso-Jiban Vietnam, Chodai, and Niwa Architects to formulate a project proposal and do a feasibility study for the pedestrian bridge.

According to Nutifood, the three companies in the consortium have extensive expertise in architectural design, construction consulting, and supervision of bridge and road projects both in Vietnam and worldwide.

The consortium won an architectural design competition for the pedestrian bridge last year.

On December 4 last year, the HCMC People’s Committee signed an agreement to accept more than VND1 trillion from Nutifood to build the pedestrian bridge over the Saigon River, connecting the central business district and Thu Thiem Peninsula which is planned to become a new modern urban area of HCMC.

Work on the pedestrian bridge is expected to start on April 30, 2025, which coincides with the 50th anniversary of the liberation of southern Vietnam and the reunfication of the country.
