HẢI PHÒNG — The Hải Phòng Port Authority announced a restriction on waterway transportation around the Hoàng Văn Thụ Bridge construction site on Cấm River in the northern city of Hải Phòng for the next 70 days.
The restriction is valid from 5am until 11 am daily from January 21 to February, 13, 2019 and from February 22 to April 2.
Chairman of the Hải Phòng People’s Committee Nguyễn Văn Tùng asked the city’s Transport Department, Police, Border Guards, Waterway Management No8 Joint Stock Company and relevant agencies to direct traffic around the construction site, prevent traffic jams and ensure marine safety during construction.
The construction of Hoàng Văn Thụ Bridge on Cấm River started in early 2017 with a total investment of VNĐ 2.6 trillion (US$112 million). It is expected to be complete by the middle of May this year.
The bridge connects the city’s inner area with the area where the People’s Committee plans to build its new administrative centre. — VNS
