A steel flyover at Cay Go roundabout in Ho Chi Minh City opened to traffic on October 19, expected to offer a traffic relief to the city’s congested gateway to south-western provinces.

The Y-shaped flyover is formed by two branches -- the one, which is 350m long and 12-15.5m wide, connecting Hong Bang street and the other, which is 230m long and 6.5m wide linking street 3/2, making it the longest of its kind in the city.

Built in five months at a cost of 339.3 billion VND, it is the city’s sixth flyover, a work that helps relieve the city’s traffic congestions.
