HCM CITY — The Việt Nam Urban and Industrial Zone Development Investment Corporation yesterday opened to traffic the Gò Mây flyover at the intersection of National Highway No.1A and Lê Trọng Tấn, Nguyễn Thị Tú streets in HCM City’s Bình Tân District.
It cost VNĐ511 billion (US$22.61 million) to build and has two sections, each 538.6 metres long and 12.2 metres wide with three lanes.
The construction was completed three months ahead of schedule.
The flyover is expected to ease traffic congestion at the National Highway No 1A section between An Sương crossroads in District 12 and An Lạc intersection in Bình Chánh District.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Lê Văn Khoa, deputy chairman of the city People’s Committee, called on IDICO to maintain the flyover in good condition.
He also instructed the Department of Transport to closely monitor and speed up work on traffic infrastructure projects to reduce traffic jams and accidents.
Nguyễn Hồng Ninh, director of IDICO, said the corporation would carry out studies for three more flyovers at intersections along National Highway No.1A. — VNS
