HCMC – The My Thuy 3 Bridge project, part of the second phase of the My Thuy Intersection project in HCMC’s Thu Duc City, will be completed by mid-May after a year of construction, according to the HCMC Management Board of Investment and Construction of Traffic Projects.
The project, once in place, will help reduce traffic congestion on Dong Van Cong Street as well as in the Cat Lai Port area, Tuoi Tre Online newspaper reported.
The final works are being completed and a lighting system will be installed along the bridge in the coming weeks.
My Thuy 3 Bridge, which is located on Dong Van Cong Street leading to Cat Lai Port in Thu Duc City, has a length of 75 meters and six lanes. An approach road to the bridge is 250 meters long.
The project, together with the My Thuy 1 and 2 bridges, will have a total width of 60 meters and include 10 lanes for cars and two lanes for motorbikes. At present, each bridge has only two lanes for cars and one lane for motorbikes.
The My Thuy Intersection project requires an investment of over VND1.4 trillion, including nearly VND1.1 trillion for construction. At present, many items of the project have yet to be developed due to slow site clearance.
