NDO – The People’s Committee of Quang Ninh province officially began construction of the Cua Luc 1 Bridge on April 28, which spans Cua Luc Bay and connects the north and south of Ha Long City.

The bridge is funded by Quang Ninh’s Management Board of Civil and Industrial Construction Projects with an investment of over VND2.1 trillion (US$89.26 million).

The steel arch bridge, measuring 290m in length and 33.1m in width, is designed to have six lanes with a speed limit of 60km per hour.

The construction project will also include several accompanying items including intersections, sewers, sidewalks, trees, lighting systems and others.

Cua Luc 1 Bridge and the connecting roads will have a total length of over 4.2km, beginning from the route in Gieng Day ward and ending at the intersection in National Highway 279 in Le Loi commune, Ha Long.

The project is scheduled for completion in 2022 which is expected to ease the overload of Bai Chay Bridge and ensure smooth traffic between the north and south of Ha Long, even during the rainy season.
