The Department of Transport in Ho Chi Minh City says it will reroute traffic on many roads in Go Vap District later this week in order to facilitate the construction of a new bridge.

Trucks and long-haul coaches, except for public buses, will be banned from traveling on the sections of Nguyen Van Nghi and Le Quang Dinh Streets which are bounded by Nguyen Thai Son Street and Pham Van Dong Boulevard from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm from Wednesday onward, the department said.

This ban is applicable to such vehicles that run in the direction from Nguyen Thai Son to Pham Van Dong, it added, without giving a specific date when the ban ends.

Drivers can take the following alternative route:  

Nguyen Thai Son => Phan Van Tri => Pham Van Dong or Nguyen Thai Son => Pham Ngu Lao => Nguyen Kiem => Pham Van Dong.

The transport department noted that only vehicles with a weight of under 13 metric tons will be allowed to cross a makeshift bridge that runs parallel to the old Hang Ngoai Bridge in Go Vap.

Congestion often occurs on Nguyen Van Nghi and Le Quang Dinh Streets so police officers should be on regular duty to regulate the traffic flow here, local residents said.

Work started on a new Hang Ngoai Bridge near the old one on September 5.

Upon completion, the whole bridge construction will be 650 meters long, stretching from Nguyen Thai Son to Pham Van Dong.

The new bridge itself measures 25 meters long and 22.5 meters wide, double the old bridge’s width.
