5pm at Dinh Vu ferry port.

Hundreds of people are hustling for the last ferry of the day.

When Tan Vu – LachHuyen Sea Bridge is opened this September, residents and visitors to this island will no longer have to put up with the 45-minute ferry.

The bridge, built by Vietnamese group CIENCO 4 and renowned Japan-based Sumitomo Mitsui Construction Company Limited, plays links developing areas in the east of HaiPhong City, LachHuyen port and Hanoi – HaiPhong expressway. It is expected to help develop Cat Haiisland’s industry and unlock Cat Ba archipelago’s tourism potential.

With a length of 5.44 kilometers, the Tan Vu – LachHuyenbridge will be the longest sea flyover in Vietnam and among the greatest in ASEAN. During its construction, there have been numerous challenges facing contractors, such as weather and terrain, which requires advanced technologies to deal with.

Contractors applied SBS technology, the latest to have been applied in Vietnam. The technology reduced completion time to three years only, despite the size and complexity of the project.

The sea bridge also breaks the record of clearance for navigation in Vietnam.

Despite hurdles, the bridge is now ready for its grand opening in September. It is expected to enhance the city’s image as a modern coastal city in the region.-VNA
