Authorities in Ho Chi Minh City on Tuesday morning surveyed the planned site of a pedestrian bridge connecting Nguyen Hue Walking Street and the Bach Dang Wharf Park in District 1.

A representative of the Ho Chi Minh City Road Traffic Infrastructure Management Center told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that the center would report the survey results to the municipal Department of Transport.

The footbridge is expected to help residents move from the city’s downtown area to the Bach Dang Wharf Park safely.

At present, residents have to cross Ton Duc Thang Street with heavy traffic.

After being revitalized and reopened to the public at the end of 2021, the Bach Dang Wharf Park has attracted a high number of visitors.

However, traveling from the city’s center to the park is inconvenient.

Many residents have proposed developing a tunnel or a footbridge.

The Ho Chi Minh City authorities later assigned the relevant departments and agencies to study and make proposals to connect the downtown area and the Bach Dang Wharf Park.
