HCM CITY — The second bridge of the Y-shaped flyover in HCM City’s Gò Vấp District connecting Phạm Ngũ Lão and Nguyễn Oanh streets opened to traffic yesterday.
It cost more than VNĐ 57 billion (US$2.51 million) and almost five months to build, two months fewer than scheduled.
The two-lane bridge is 280 metres long and six metres wide, and allows vehicles to travel one-way to Nguyễn Oanh.
The steel flyover, which cost a total of VNĐ406 billion ($17.88 million), has another bridge connecting Nguyễn Oanh and Nguyễn Kiệm Streets that opened to traffic last January.
It is helping ease congestion at the Gò Vấp intersection and major roads leading to Tân Sơn Nhất International Airport. —VNS
