HCMC – Haiphong has proposed expanding Provincial Road No. 352 and building the Lai Xuan Bridge crossing the Da Bach River with an estimated investment of VND1.3 trillion to connect with Quang Ninh Province.
With a length of 786 meters, the Lai Xuan bridge will be developed to replace the Lai Xuan ferry service, connecting national highways 18 and 10 in Haiphong and Quang Ninh.
The approach roads to the Lai Xuan Bridge will be around 1.8 kilometers long and 12 meters wide. One road spans 1.2 kilometers in Haiphong, and the other spans 602 meters in Quang Ninh.
The city will upgrade and expand Provincial Road No.352 with a length of 13.4 kilometers and a width of 12 meters, starting from National Highway 10 and ending at Lai Xuan Bridge.
The two projects require a total VND1.32 trillion, funded by the city’s budget. Some VND792 billion will be spent on construction, while VND254 billion will be for site clearance.
According to the plan, Quang Ninh’s authority will pay VND13 billion for site clearance in the province.
The projects are part of the transportation system between Thuy Nguyen District of Haiphong City, with Dong Trieu Town in Quang Ninh Province.
They aim to gradually improve the traffic connectivity between the provincial roads of No. 325 in Haiphong and No. 333 in Quang Ninh, as well as national highways 18 and 10.
The Ben Rung Bridge got off the ground in May this year to facilitate transportation between Thuy Nguyen District in Haiphong and Quang Yen Town in Quang Ninh.
