Three more flyovers will be built in Ho Chi Minh City to help ease traffic congestion at key intersections.

Work on the steel flyovers is scheduled to begin on April 30 with a total cost of over 1 trillion VND (approximately 48 million USD), said the municipal Department of Transport on March 25.

The three flyovers will be built at the junctions of Cong Hoa-Hoang Hoa Tham streets, Nguyen Tri Phuong-Ba Thang Hai-Ly Thai To streets and Vong Xoay Cay Go, which are heavily congested sites.

The overpass at Cong Hoa-Hoang Hoa Tham junction in Tan Binh district measures 238 metres in length and has two traffic lanes. Construction of the overpass is slated for five months.

Meanwhile, the two-lane flyover at Nguyen Tri Phuong-Ba Thang Hai-Ly Thai To junction is 358.2 metres long and the other is designed to have the Y shape, which connect with Hong Bang and Ba Thang Hai roads.

This is part of the city’s efforts to ease traffic congestion at 12 key junctions.

Earlier, two flyovers at Thu Duc and Vong Xoay Hang Xanh junctions were put into service last year.

A 121 billion VND overpass at Lang Cha Ca intersection in Tan Binh district is also scheduled to complete in June this year.-VNA
