The Hanoi Department of Transport, China Pacific Construction Group, and Vietnam Construction and Import-Export Joint stock Corporation (Vinaconex) on Thursday morning inked a memorandum of understanding to study and build Tu Lien Bridge and metro link No. 5 in the Vietnamese capital city.

The Tu Lien bridge project encompasses a bridge and roads connecting it with Hanoi - Thai Nguyen Expressway, stretching some 11.5 kilometers.

The project, which will carry a price tag of nearly VND20 trillion (US$812 million), will start at Nghi Tam Intersection and end at an intersection with Beltway No. 3.

The 2.9-kilometer bridge will have six lanes for motorized vehicles, two lanes for both motorcycles and cars, and two for walking.

In August 2023, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh asked relevant units to start work on the bridge project in the 2025-30 period, local media reported.

Meanwhile, the city's fifth metro line project, aimed at linking downtown Hanoi with satellite urban areas, is planned to incorporate a 6.5-kilometer underground section, a two-kilometer elevated section, and a 30-kilometer section at ground level. The estimated cost for this project is VND65 trillion ($2.6 billion).

The Van Cao - Ngoc Khanh - Lang - Hoa Lac urban railway project, spanning 38.5 kilometers, is designed to include 21 stations and two depots.

Its route will traverse through Ba Dinh, Dong Da, Cau Giay, and Nam Tu Lien Inner Districts, as well as Hoai Duc, Quoc Oai, and Thach That Suburban Districts.

Metro line No. 5 is set to be implemented in the 2021-25 period.

As planned, Hanoi will have 10 metro links, including nine main urban rail systems and one line connecting with satellite urban areas, with a total length of nearly 420 kilometers.

The capital city put into service the 13-kilometer-long Ha Dong - Cat Linh metro line in November 2021, while the 12.5-kilometer Nhon - Hanoi Station urban railway is under construction, local media reported.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Dao Ngoc Thanh, chairman of Vinaconex, said that the firm was eager to contribute to building the city’s key traffic projects.

The Vietnamese and Chinese firms were committed to ensuring that the projects would be executed according to the planned schedule and with maximum effectiveness.

The Tu Lien bridge and fifth metro line projects are listed among the key traffic projects in Hanoi to help ease traffic jams and facilitate traffic flow.

Founded in 1986, China Pacific Construction Group, headquartered in Xinjiang, specializes in the investment, construction, operation, and management of infrastructure.
