HCMC – The Thu Thiem 2 Bridge project is expected to be completed by April 30, 2022, said Tran Ba Duong, chairman of Dai Quang Minh Real Estate Investment JSC as owner of the project.
On September 30, secretary of the HCMC Party Committee Nguyen Van Nen, municipal chairman Phan Van Mai, municipal vice chairman Le Hoa Binh and other officials inspected the construction site of the project.
Duong said work on the project went on even during holidays and the Covid-19 pandemic and it was 85% complete.
The project, once in place, will connect the city’s current business hub with the Thu Thiem New Urban Area in Thu Duc City, encourage the development of the eastern tech-driven urban area and contribute to reducing traffic congestion in the city.
The slow site clearance had affected the project’s progress. However, the obstacle has been removed since early this year, Duong said.
Due to the pandemic, the investor has asked contractors, consultants and relevant agencies to apply the stay-at-work mode and comply with anti-pandemic measures to ensure safety for laborers.
On the same day, Luong Minh Phuc, director of the Transportation Works Construction Investment Project Management Authority of HCMC, reported the progress of the development of infrastructure facilities on nine land lots of the Thu Thiem New Urban Area.
The technical infrastructure development on the nine land lots will add value to the land lots and facilitate the quick development of the Thu Thiem New Urban Area. The project will also be connected to the Thu Thiem 2 Bridge to improve the effectiveness of traffic infrastructure projects.
Phuc said the project was a key one, which helped put the nine land lots up for auction to create revenue for the city. The main technical infrastructure packages have been completed and a package to plant trees and install lighting equipment is expected for completion before October 15.
The Transportation Works Construction Investment Project Management Authority of HCMC will complete the infrastructure facilities of six land lots before October 15 and accelerate the progress of the remaining packages to complete the entire project.
