VTV.vn - The Government has approved Ho Chi Minh City’s plans to build two bridges over the Soai Rap River.

The Binh Khanh Bridge will link Nha Be and Can Gio Districts.

The Government also green-lighted the construction of a new road parallel to the existing National Highway No.50 in the city.

Part of the city’s traffic development master plan, they will all be finished before 2020.

The Government has instructed related agencies to complete the formalities for the projects and submit additional plans if there are any before December 31 this year.

The city wants to build the 4.5km Cat Lai Bridge—including roads leading up to it—to facilitate the transport of goods from industrial parks on National Highway No. 51 and in the Nhon Trach urban area to ports in Districts 2 and 7.

Binh Khanh Bridge will replace the Binh Khanh ferry, currently the only way to reach Can Gio from the city and badly overloaded.

The 8.6km road along National Highway No. 50 from Nha Be District to the border of Long An Province would ease the load on the highway.
