Hai Phong (VNA) – A massive overfly spanning the major Nguyen Binh Khiem – Le Hong Phong intersection in the northern city of Hai Phong was put into operation on January 25.

With total investment amounting to nearly 310 billion VND (13.7 million USD), the facility is 267.6m long and 16m wide, with four traffic lanes.

The overfly, whose lifespan is designed to reach 100 years, allows vehicles to travel at 60km/h.

The transport infrastructure project was completed after a record construction time of seven months.

Considered one of the most heavily congested spots in Hai Phong, the Nguyen Binh Khiem – Le Hong Phong intersection connects two major roads of the city. Nguyen Binh Khiem is part of the national highway No 5 through the local urban area, while Le Hong Phong is the main road to the Cat Bi international airport.-VNA
