Saigon airport entrance flyovers before opening

Sunday, July 02, 2017, 15:26 GMT+7

The final touches are being put on two flyovers at the entrances of Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City, which are intended to alleviate frequent congestion in the areas.

As the two overpasses are set to be open to traffic on Monday, July 3, the final building work is being completed to meet the schedule.

The first flyover is a Y-shaped overpass, stemming from Truong Son Street in Tan Binh District before splitting to funnel travelers toward either the domestic or international terminal at the airport.

It was finished two months earlier than the original plan.

The second one is located at the Nguyen Thai Son Roundabout in Go Vap District, allowing vehicles to travel from Hoang Minh Giam to Nguyen Kiem and Nguyen Thai Son Streets.

The route is one of the three branches of an overpass project at the traffic circle, with the other two branches linking Nguyen Kiem and Nguyen Thai Son Streets, and Nguyen Kiem and Hoang Minh Giam Streets.

Located less than 2km from Tan Son Nhat, the flyover is also expected to help facilitate airport commutes.  

Proposals for the two flyovers were approved by the prime minister in November 2016.
