Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on September 25 inaugurated the Vinh Tuy concrete bridge over the Red River, making it the seventh of its kind leading into Hanoi.
The Government leader described the project as a milestone in the national bridge building industry’s development history.
“The Government will do its best to introduce more and more practical projects to maintain the capital city’s sustainable development and prosperity,’ Dung vowed.
The 10 km-long bridge will help to ease traffic flows between urban areas as well as between the northern industrial zones and the metropolis south of the Red River, which will contribute to the city’s economic development, social welfare and national defence.
With an investment of VND 3.5 trillion, the Hanoi People’s Committee expects the project to help reduce traffic jams on the other two major bridges of Long Bien and Chuong Duong that lead to central Hanoi .
The capital city is also investing in another bridge, the Nhat Tan, on the second ring road around Hanoi, cutting the travel time from central Hanoi to Noi Bai international airport.
