DA NANG (VNS)— The central city started construction of a multi-level flyover project at Hue junction on Saturday in a bid to alleviate congestion at the city's busiest roundabout.
The Build-Transfer (BT) project with investment capital of VND1.797 trillion (US$85.6 million) is now in its first phase and is scheduled to be completed in 2015.
Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc praised the efforts of the city's administrators in raising funds for the scheme.
He called on investors and bidders to instill plans for safe and environmentally friendly construction of the flyover. The road is designed with three levels, whereby vehicles traveling on the ground will not cross the railway line in place.
The first and second levels will have four lanes each, measuring 15m and 17m wide respectively.
According to statistics, each day the junction is used for 30 train journeys, 5,000 automobiles, 10,000 motorbikes and 80,000 bicycles and pedestrians. — VNS
