HCMC – The Ministry of Transport has given the nod to the Dai Ngai bridge project linking Tra Vinh and Soc Trang provinces in the Mekong Delta region at a total cost of VND8 trillion.
The bridge project will start at an intersection with National Highway 54 in Tra Vinh Province’s Tieu Can District and end at an intersection with Nam Song Hau Road in Soc Trang Province.
The project, which will comprise the Dai Ngai 1 and 2 bridges and approach roads, will have a total length of 15.1 kilometers of National Highway 60 and four lanes and allow a maximum speed of 80 kilometers per hour.
Besides, the project will also include building five bridges and seven interchanges.
The project aims to promote the transportation of goods in the region and enhance connectivity with HCMC.
When in place, the Dai Ngai Bridge will reduce transport costs, ease the burden on National Highway 1 and shorten the distance from Ca Mau, Soc Trang and Bac Lieu to HCMC by some 80 kilometers.
