HCMC – Work on the VND8-trillion Dai Ngai Bridge, connecting the Mekong Delta provinces of Soc Trang and Tra Vinh, is scheduled to commence on October 20, according to local authorities.
Dai Ngai Bridge, part of National Highway 60, begins at an intersection with National Highway 54 in Tra Vinh Province’s Tieu Can District and ends at an intersection with Nam Song Hau Road in Soc Trang Province.
The project, comprising Dai Ngai 1 and 2 bridges and approach roads, will have a total length of over 15 kilometers, and require more than VND8 trillion from the State budget.
Tran Van Lau, chairman of the Soc Trang People’s Committee, said that the compensation and land clearance process has been nearly completed, ensuring that land handover proceeds as planned.
Dai Ngai Bridge is an important project in the Mekong Delta. Upon completion, it is expected to reduce transportation costs, alleviate traffic congestion on National Highway 1, and shorten the distance from Ca Mau, Soc Trang and Bac Lieu to HCMC by about 80 kilometers.
