The wooden bridge, famous for its tiled roof, was built in 1776, 8km away from the center of Hue City with the “house above, bridge below” construction and is divided into 7 sections, roofed with enameled tiles.
It is 18.75m long and 5.82m wide, recognized as a national relic site in 1990.
The project will be carried out in three years starting this September.
