Two major transport projects linking the southern province of Dong Nai with the country’s southern economic hubs were opened to the public on January 19.

The new steel flyover at the Vung Tau intersection and a section of the new Hoa An bridge have been completed in time for the upcoming Lunar New Year (Tet) festivities.

The 558m long, 16 m wide, four-lane overpass is part of an investment project building the new Dong Nai Bridge in form of a Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) contract.

The 200-billion-VND (9.4 million USD) flyover, completed in just four months, will help clear traffic jam and prevent accidents at the gateway to the southern economic hubs.

The flyover will also serve local people travelling, especially during the Tet celebrations, said Deputy Minister of Transport Nguyen Ngoc Dong.

Meanwhile, the new 1.3km Hoa An Bridge was built under the Built-Transfer (BT) form with a total cost of over one trillion VND (470 million USD), linking Dong Nai’s Nguyen Ai Quoc road with the southern province of Binh Duong and Ho Chi Minh City.-VNA
