NDO – The Hanoi Municipal People’s Committee has just issued Decision No.2673, approving the feasibility study report on the construction of the second phase of Vinh Tuy Bridge in 2020.

The Vinh Tuy Bridge’s second phase will take the same shape as the first one, with a total length of over 3.4km including belt roads. It will measure 19.25m in width, which can accommodate four lanes of vehicles.

The cost of construction for the bridge’s second phase is estimated over VND2.5 trillion (US$107.1 million), sourced from the city’s budget.

The second Vinh Tuy bridge will be parallel to the first one with its centre about 21m from the centre of the current bridge.

The reinforced concrete bridge will start from the intersection of Nguyen Khoai and Minh Khai streets in Hai Ba Trung District and end at the crossroads of Long Bien and Thach Ban streets in Long Bien District.

The construction of the bridge’s second phase is expected to complete the entirety of Hanoi’s Belt Road No 2, enhancing circulation between the two sides of the Red River, meeting increasing transport demand between the city centre and the north and northeast areas of the city.

The project is scheduled for completion in 2022.
