Authorities in Dong Nai Province, southern Vietnam have initiated the construction of a VND1.5 trillion (US$64 million) bridge to boost connectivity and create conditions for local socio-economic development.

The Dong Nai Traffic Construction Investment Project Management Board on Tuesday morning organized the groundbreaking of Thong Nhat Bridge and two roads leading to the bridge.

Thong Nhat Bridge is part of a project to build the central route of Bien Hoa City, which is the capital of the southern province.

This is one of Dong Nai’s key projects, carrying a price tag of VND1.5 trillion.

The route project has a total length of 5.4 kilometers, connecting Thong Nhat and Hiep Hoa Wards in Bien Hoa City, which are separated by the Dong Nai River.

Thong Nhat Bridge and the roads leading to it are the most important categories of this project.

The bridge will be 45-95 meters wide and have six to 10 lanes upon completion.

The construction of Thong Nhat Bridge is expected to last for 900 days.

The project to build the central route of Bien Hoa City will open up a new urban development space when completed, said Cao Tien Dung, chairman of the Dong Nai People’s Committee.

The route is aimed at boosting connectivity at the eastern gateway of Bien Hoa City, creating favorable conditions for socio-economic development, contributing to the improvement of urban space, and gradually completing the traffic development plan of the city.

Chairman Dung requested relevant units to complete necessary procedures to ensure the quality and progress of the project.
