HCM CITY — Work began last Friday on the first phase of the Mỹ Thuỷ intersection in District 2 with total investment of nearly VNĐ838 billion (US$37.4 million), according to the city’s Department of Transport.

The project, which aims to curb traffic congestion at the Cát Lai Port area in District 2, is scheduled to be completed by 2018.

The project will include a 17-metre four-lane flyover with a length of 316 metres; a nine metre tall two-lane tunnel with a length of 405 metres; and the four-lane Kỳ Hà 3 Bridge that is 17 metres wide and 75 metres long, among other works.

Lê Ngọc Hùng, director of the Urban Traffic Management Zone 2, said the intersection is located at two major traffic routes, Nguyễn Thị Định Street and Belt Road 2.

Nguyễn Thị Định Street leads to Cát Lái Port with more than 18,000 container trucks travelling on it daily.

Hùng said it was essential to build the Mỹ Thuỷ intersection to serve the transport of goods into Cát Lái Port.

At least 5.7 hectares of land will be cleared to make way for the project, which will affect 164 households. — VNS
