HCM CITY — Đồng Nai Province authorities have urged their HCM City counterparts to choose one of two cost options offered with respect to the construction of a bridge to replace the Cát Lái ferry by its builder.
The three-kilometre-long bridge will connect the city’s District 2 with Nhơn Trạch District in Đồng Nai, and be built as a build-operate-transfer project by 194 Construction Investment Corporation.
The corporation has proposed two alternative plans, one to cost VNĐ5.7 trillion (US$ 228 million) and the other, VNĐ4.4 trillion (US$176 million).
But no more details are known.
The city People’s Committee has instructed relevant agencies to consider the two options and make recommendations.
Work is expected to begin in the first quarter of next year.
The Cát Lái ferry carries an average of 50,000 passengers a day and 100,000 on peak days. — VNS
