HCM CITY – A massive flyover will be built early next year at the Nguyễn Thái Sơn-Nguyễn Kiệm Street intersection near HCM City’s Tân Sơn Nhất Airport to unclog an area which is choked by traffic, the Department of Transport has said.
The N-shaped flyover, which will comprise three separate arms, will cost around VNĐ504 billion (US$22.16 million), including land cost.
One will go from Hoàng Minh Giám Street above the roundabout and land on Nguyễn Thái Sơn. It will have a second structure that turns left into Nguyễn Kiệm. The third will come from Nguyễn Thái Sơn towards the airport and turn left into Nguyễn Kiệm.
Construction, to be overseen by the department’s Urban Transport Management Authority No.3, is scheduled to finish within eight months.
The roads around the intersection will be widened, equipped with LED lighting and greened with trees. – VNS
