HCM CITY (VNS) — The People's Committee of HCM City on Wednesday approved the Transport Department's proposal to build a steel flyover at the Go Vap intersection.
According to the department, the steel overpass at the intersection will have a Y-shape over the main route of Nguyen Oanh – Nguyen Kiem streets, and a minor route over Pham Ngu Lao – Nguyen Oanh streets.
The flyover across Nguyen Oanh will be 12m wide with four lanes, and the other section over Nguyen Kiem and Pham Ngu Lao will be 6m wide with two lanes.
The department said the flyover project would have total investment of VND354 trillion (US$16.8 million) and will be completed in seven months.
Construction of the project will be carried out soon, according to the department.
The flyovers are expected to relieve traffic congestion by 75-80 per cent in the area. This is the city's seventh steel overpass and second Y-shaped bridge investment.
In order to solve congestion problems at several hotspots, HCM City has built six steel overpasses at Thu Duc intersection, Hang Xanh intersection, Lang Cha Ca roundabout, Nguyen Tri Phuong – Ly Thai To – 3/2 intersection, Cong Hoa – Hoang Hoa Tham crossroads, and the first Y-shaped flyover at Cay Go roundabout. — VNS
