Ho Chi Minh City-based Phu My Bridge B.O.T Company is a major investment firm specializing in transportation infrastructure development. It is building Phu My Bridge over the Saigon River in the city, a VND2.6 trillion (US$153 million) project, and the approach roads to the bridge – a VND1.6 trillion (US$94 million) project. The suspension bridge will play a very important role in traffic in the southern hub.
Next year, Phu My will build Sai Gon 2 Bridge, also in the city, which requires about a US$120 million investment. Besides, it will take part in carrying out other major transportation projects in the country and they need investments of more than a billion of US dollars.
