HCMC – Two footbridges linking the Saigon Hi-Tech Park and the Binh Thai station of Metro Line No. 1 have been completed after five months of construction.

These footbridges are expected to be opened in the fourth quarter of this year, coinciding with the launch of the city’s first urban railway, which connects Ben Thanh Market in District 1 and Suoi Tien Theme Park in Thu Duc City, according to the Management Authority for Urban Railways of HCMC (MAUR).

With 80 to 150 meters in length and 3.5 meters in width and a vertical clearance of nearly five meters, the two bridges serve as vital connections between the parallel road of Vo Nguyen Giap Highway and the metro line station. They are part of the nine footbridges planned to connect the elevated stations of Metro Line No. 1 and the neighborhoods.

Three more footbridges are expected to be finished by the end of May.

The remaining four footbridges at Thao Dien, An Phu, Thu Duc, and National University stations are also under construction.
